The activities of two separate projects in Ethiopia’s Somali region were covered by this review. One was the third phase of the cross-border ‘Regional Drought Decision’ programme, which focused on building the capacity of community-based disaster risk management committees, as well as the construction of water storage facilities and the setting up of some pilot pastoralist field schools (PFSs). The second project, the Somali Region Drought Recovery and Preparedness Project, was launched following the severe drought of 2008/09, and involved rehabilitating communal rangeland, restocking herds for female-headed households, training of community animal-health workers, a livestock vaccination campaign, a public-health campaign, and latrine construction. These full and summary reports document the findings of a quasi-experimental impact evaluation carried out in November 2012.
