Resilience in the Sahel Enhanced (RISE)

Resilience in the Sahel Enhanced (RISE) is the Sahel Regional Office-led resilience initiative that aims to address the root causes of persistent vulnerability. Based on joint analysis and planning between USAID development and humanitarian professionals and in collaboration with a multitude of partners across the region, this initiative brings together humanitarian and development assistance programming to build resilience in a targeted zone of intervention in Niger and Burkina Faso.

Operationally, the RISE initiative is a set of USAID development and humanitarian assistance projects and activities that are managed collectively by the Sahel Regional Office (SRO), USAID Office of Food for Peace (FFP), USAID/West Africa Regional, USAID/Washington and the field offices in Burkina Faso and Niger.

Three programs managed by the SRO that support the RISE initiative include: Resilience and Economic Growth in the Sahel –Enhanced Resilience (REGIS-ER), a multi-sectoral resilience project; Resilience and Economic Growth in the Sahel – Accelerated Growth (REGIS-AG), a focused value-chain project, and; the Sahel Resilience Learning Project (SAREL) that bolsters collaboration, learning and adaptation across the entire RISE platform.
