Learning Briefs | October 27, 2016

Building more resilient pathways to prosperity

Community perspectives from Burkina Faso and Ethiopia

This collection of eight learning briefs allows CRS and partner staff to learn from select examples of absorptive, adaptive and transformative capacities in agricultural livelihoods from the ongoing Families Achieving Sustainable Outcomes (FASO) program in Burkina Faso and the Resilience through Enhanced Adaptation, Action-learning, and Partnership (REAAP) program in Ethiopia. The two programs illustrate the promising practices and approaches to strengthening resilience, as well as challenges to achieving transformative change, in livelihoods within a three- to five-year period. The briefs also provide an overview of CRS’ progress in shaping and implementing a vision for building resilience in new or existing food security programs.
