After initial funding of $13.9 million in 2022 for phase I of the Resilient Water Development Programme for Improved Livelihoods in Borana, Ethiopia, the African Development Fund (ADF) is back with a second grant of $46.02 million. The grant will be used to finance phase II of the programme, which aims to support climate resilience.

The Resilient Water Development Programme for Livelihood Improvement in Borana, a town in southern Ethiopia, is gradually coming to an end. On 28 February 2024, the Ethiopian government was awarded a $46.02 million grant to implement phase II of the programme, which was launched in 2022. The funds were allocated by the African Development Fund (ADF), the concessional lending arm of the African Development Bank (AfDB) Group.
