Duplication of beneficiary kebeles in both Livelihoods for Resilience Activity Project and PSNP4 Livelihood Implementation & Coordination Unit (LICU) has been resolved on the workshop held in June 2018. After beneficiaries are fully handed over to PSNP4 LICU, ORDA’s Livelihood for Resilience Activity Project still requires addressing 8,469 poor households.

Eventually, the workshop has arrived at a consensus to fill in poor households in Gubalafto, Mersa, Kobo, Menz Gera & Menz Mama woredas.
