Learning Brief

Climate information services in Ethiopia – A key resilience capacity for households & businesses

January 15, 2024

Climate change is wreaking havoc on livelihoods and food security outcomes in the lowlands of Ethiopia. Timely access to climate information services (CIS) can play a key role in enabling producers to manage their livelihoods in the face of uncertainty and mitigate the impact of shocks, but these systems are largely absent in the lowlands. This learning brief describes how CARE International, through the Mercy Corps-led RIPA-North program, is working to foster locally driven services for climate and early warning information. The brief highlights the impact this is having in terms of household-level decision-making and also the challenges of achieving long-term sustainability of these systems.

Breaking the Silence: The 10 most under-reported humanitarian crises of 2023

For the eighth year in a row, CARE has produced a report on the 10 most under-reported humanitarian crises of 2023. For the second year in a row, all ten of the most under-reported crises are in Africa. From conflict in Angola to climate change in Zimbabwe, every entry in this report represents countless human tragedies taking place in the shadows of the world's gaze. In a world where news cycles are becoming more short-lived, it is more important than ever that we collectively remember that every crisis, whether forgotten or not, brings with it a human toll.

CARE & FAO’s Partnership for Gender Transformative Farmer Field Schools

December 19, 2023

This brief provides an overview of CARE's partnership with the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) on the scaling out of FAO's Farmer Field Schools (FFS) to ensure more gender transformative outcomes. Through CARE’s Farmer Field and Business School (FFBS) approach, which is an adaptation of FFS, CARE is promoting and implementing a gender transformative, market-based, and nutrition-sensitive approach to agricultural extension to help address a range of challenges and close the gender gap. The FFBS approach works by empowering women to address social and gender norm barriers, engaging men and boys to champion gender equality, supporting women small-scale producers, and increasing food security and good nutrition.
