Ethiopia: Regional CoordinatorClosing date: 2015-01-20Organization: Horn of Africa Regional Environment Centre and Network Country: Ethiopia Closing date: 20 Jan 2015 Background: The Horn of Africa Regional Environment Centre & Network (HoA-REC&N) covers six countries: Djibouti, Ethiopia, Kenya, Somalia, South Sudan and Sudan. The Centre is the secretariat of a network of more than 40 higher-education institutions and civil society organisations that aim to improve environmental governance and promote sustainable development in the Horn of Africa. A detailed overview about HoA-REC&N is available on [www.hoarec.org]. The Horn of Africa Climate Change Programme (HoA-CCP) will be the organisation’s first programme with a regional focus. The HoA-CCP aims to align to climate-relevant government policies in target countries of the Horn of Africa, and work within identified intervention areas to promote systematic implementation of a flagship development model that establishes stronger links between safeguarding ecosystem integrity and enhancing income-generating opportunities. The programme aims to develop a ‘package’ of concrete activities (support to land use development planning, rainwater harvesting, soil conservation measures, climate smart agriculture, green value chains, renewable energy options) that can be implemented more or less equally in five different landscapes. The HoA-CCP will produce a number of concrete ‘products’ (as stated in the programme proposal): · Baseline study for each landscape: a biophysical, climatic and socio-economic baseline will be created for each of the selected landscapes, upon which a tailor-made intervention package will be designed and implemented by HoA-REN members, led by a National Focal Point Organization. · Demand Driven Action Research and Demonstration Initiatives: the HoA-CCP aims to promote innovations and innovative approaches via a ‘trial and error’ and ‘learning by doing’ methodology, thereby making the programme function as a catalyst for new ideas in the different countries. The National Focal Point Organizations of the Network will be at the core of development initiatives in their landscapes, with technical support being provided by HoA-REC and/or its partners. Since up-scaling will mainly be done by other development actors in the landscapes, the main programme targets will be at the level of project proposals and business plans created, integrated land use development planning processes facilitated, new value chains initiated or facilitated, and models developed for innovation demonstration and dissemination. · Landscape governance learning trajectory: in collaboration with a group of Dutch knowledge institutions (WUR, VU and UNESCO-IHE), a landscape governance learning trajectory will be developed during the inception phase to provide network members with additional knowledge, experience and tools to become a proactive, well-informed core actor in a multi-stakeholder process for sustainable governance and development of their respective intervention landscapes. Working together with authorities on land and water use planning and with companies on green income-generating opportunities will be important aspects in the learning trajectory. · Regional landscape studies: the flagship character of the programme will facilitate the bringing in of best practices into the policy arena at the national, regional and African level through the elaboration and publishing of (comparative) studies on the Horn landscapes together with internationally renowned research institutions. The studies will capture success stories and lessons learned and aim to serve both the influencing of environmental and green growth policies in the Horn, as well as the attraction of suitable commercial investments and additional funding for the HoA-CCP.

Financed through FTF and GCC, PRIME is designed to be transformative, innovative and achieve scale through market-driven approaches to livestock production and livelihood diversification that simultaneously support dryland communities to adapt to a changing climate. Purpose / Project Description: Shortly after inception, PRIME organized a series of EMMA assessments [including fodder and livestock inputs] in its three clusters (Afar, Eastern and Southern) to a) identify and map actors along the value of chains of key importance to pastoralist and agro-pastoralist communities as well as people transitioning out of pastoralism, and b) come up with recommendations (EMMA step 10) for each value chain in order to design appropriate interventions during non-emergency and emergency times. In mid-2014, the rainy season under-performed in duration and volume in PRIME areas. Pasture areas in the affected rangeland systems were depleted or far from water points, livestock body condition declined and livestock deaths were reported. Milk productivity declined as well, with fears of child malnutrition in pastoralist communities. As a result, PRIME responded to the emergency by designing a feed and fodder voucher intervention through which communities could access these, linking feed and fodder wholesalers with retailers, and targeting the most vulnerable households with breeding stock along with local authorities. PRIME is interested in learning if its voucher and market linkage intervention has had any impact as well as do the emergency overlay of the fodder and livestock input EMMAs. For that, PRIME is hiring a consultant to lead the EMMA assessment for fodder and livestock inputs in the three clusters as well as document the outcomes of the emergency intervention PRIME conducted.
