This morning, the CEO of HRF met with Jennifer Karsner, the resilience coordinator for USAID Ethiopia, and Professor Gbola Adesogam, director of the Feed the Future Innovation Lab for Livestock Systems. They talked about how to collaborate with the HRF on initiatives that would benefit and save the lives of Ethiopia’s pastoral communities.

In the course of the conversation, H.E. Roman Tesfaye, former First Lady of Ethiopia and CEO of the HRF explained HRF’s experience working in the pastoral communities in the South and West Omo Zones; they then decided to set up a session to share this experience with other working groups undertaking comparable efforts.
