The R4 Rural Resilience Initiative (R4) is a strategic partnership between Oxfam America (OA) and the UN World Food Programme (WFP). R4 was initiated in 2011 to respond to the challenges faced by food-insecure communities enduring increasingly frequent and intense climate disasters and other shocks. This quarter focused on initiating R4 activities in the countries, including Zimbabwe where the initiative will be implemented this year. The indices for the 2017 agricultural season triggered payouts in Ethiopia, Senegal, Malawi, and Zambia, and payout distributions will take place in the second quarter of 2018.
