R4, a safety net program in Ethiopia: helping small-scale farmers to reduce the impact of disasters and increase production

The Rural Resilience Initiative (R4) is part of the G20 InsuResilience Global Partnership. R4 aims to bolster the Ethiopian agricultural sector with protective measures against climate risk. When droughts occur and farmers receive compensation for weather-related losses, they have more chances to overcome hunger, achieve food security and invest in their productivity and income diversification.
