Pastoral Community Development Project III

Pastoral Community Development Project III
The objective of this project is to improve access to community-driven social and economic services for Ethiopia's pastoralists and agro-pastoralists. The initiative is expected to improve their livelihoods by increasing and stabilizing incomes, improving nutrition, health and education, and expanding the target population's decision-making authority in local development planning.

The main components of the project include:

Community-driven service provision, specifically targeting 107 woredas – or administrative divisions – in Afar, Oromia, Somali and the Southern Nations, Nationalities and Peoples Regional State
Rural livelihoods support through enhanced access to financial services and advisory services
Development learning and knowledge management, building the capacity of pastoral groups to participate in policy dialogue, and enhanced transparency and learning within the project.

Building on its two earlier phases, this national project covers all of the country's pastoral woredas, except those in Benishangul Gumuz and Gambella. During its 15-year implementation period, the project is expected to provide improved access to public services and support livelihoods for about 4.7 million rural people.
