Resilience and Economic Growth in the Sahel-Enhanced Resilience

REGIS-ER is a five year project financed by the United States Agency for International Development (USAID). Its objectives are to enhance the resilience of the peoples of Niger and Burkina Faso, to improve their food security, and to reduce their vulnerability to climate change-triggered events that lead to frequent humanitarian assistance requirements. REGIS-ER addresses the pillars of food security (availability, accessibility, utilization, and stability) as part of the process of reducing vulnerability of populations in marginal agro-pastoral regions of the Sahel.

United in Building and Advancing Life Expectations

UBALE, which means partnership in Chichewa and also stands for United in Building and Advancing Life Expectations, is a key element of USAID’s comprehensive development cooperation strategy in Malawi.  The project is implemented with local NGOs through existing government structures in three food-insecure, chronically malnourished and disaster-prone districts of Southern Malawi: Chikwawa, Nsanje, and rural Blantyre, where UBALE aims to reach all 284 communities totaling about 248,000 households with an integrated set of agricultural and nutritional interventions.
