HARITA IRI report to Oxfam America

Osgood, Daniel E.

The Horn of Africa Risk Transfer for Adaptation (HARITA) project is a holistic adaptation
risk management project involving three main components: risk reduction, risk transfer, and
prudent risk taking. The risk reduction component involves activities such as composting,
water harvesting, planting trees, and seed cleaning, and interfaces closely with the Ethiopian
Productive Safety Net Program (PSNP), a work for food program through which low income
farmers are compensated for their labor in activities such as risk reduction.
