Pastoralists Areas Resilience Improvement and Market Expansion (PRIME): Pastoralists Areas Resiliency Improvement and Market Expansion (PRIME) is a five year project aimed to increase household incomes and improve the resiliency and adaptive capacity of pastoral communities to climate change through market expansion. PRIME will be implemented in selected districts (woredas) of Somali, Afar and Oromia Regions targeting 250,000 households as direct beneficiaries PRIME's overall goal is to reduce hunger and poverty. The project objective is to increase household incomes and enhance resilience to climate change through market linkages. The design and implementation of the project is based on the interaction between 'climate change, pastoralism/livestock and chronic vulnerability' The attainment of these objectives is through a multiple approach; (a) fostering the growth and competitiveness of livestock value chains; (b) addressing the needs of the very poor and chronically food insecure households through reaching down to this population through value chain interventions and addressing their needs through interventions; (c) improving the policy environment through a continuous evaluation and learning process through collaboration and linkages.
