Main Objective and Actions
The overarching objective of the Refugee Protection Working Group (RPWG) is to ensure a timely, effective and coordinated refugee protection response in Ethiopia, underpinning the broader refugee response in the country. Toward this end, the RPWG will:
Work collaboratively to establish/confirm the refugee protection objectives that form the essential foundation of the Ethiopia refugee operation;
These guidelines for transitional shelter construction in the Jijiga camps are meant to cover the period from 2017 to the end of 2020, and shall guide the UNHCR shelter and settlement activities in the refugee camps around Jijiga, Somali Region, based on the directions set out by the UNHCR/ARRA Shelter Strategy 2017 - 2020.
The Emergency Response Capacity (ERC) Consortium for the Uptake of MPGs is formed by Save the Children, CaLP, Danish Refugee Council, Mercy Corps, and OCHA with ECHO financing. Its primary aim is the improvement of capacity, coordination and evidence for multi-purpose cash grants through the design of collaborative tools and mechanisms to enhance the capacity of agencies to set up and implement multipurpose grants (MPGs) in emergency contexts.

The evolving negative impact of IOD has resulted into below-average rainfall and drought situation in Ethiopia. There is significant gaps in drinking water supply to households in the six most affected regions. Water scarcity in lowland areas of Oromia, part of SNNP, Somali and Afar region is critical. Approximately 3.9 million people needs immediate water supply in 195 woredas of the 4 regions.
Activated in 2008, the UNHCR-led Ethiopia Protection Cluster focuses on the rights and needs of specific vulnerable groups, including women, children, persons with disabilities, elderly and Internally Displaced Persons (‘IDPs’), and is led by UNHCR. The first sub-national Protection Cluster in Gambella Regional State was established in December 2016.
1. SITUATION OVERVIEW AND RATIONAL
Ethiopia is the second most populous country in Africa, with an estimated population of over 90 million. The country has the largest youth population in SSA. Children and young people (0 to 24-year) make up 65.6% of the total population'. Ethiopia has recorded one of the fastest growing economies (at an average of 10.5%) in the Sub-Saharan Africa in the last 10 years2. However, it ranks 174 of 188 countries on the 2015 Human Development Index implying a long way to go.
Ecosystem restoration is the “process of assisting the recovery of an ecosystem that has been degraded, damaged or destroyed” (SER Primer 2004). Which combination of ecosystem restoration interventions is most effective in a certain area depends on the landscape’s characteristics.
This manual aims to support capacity building and advocacy activities focusing on ecosystems restoration in the Upper Fafan Catchment. It describes where and when to implement protection and management, soil and water conservation, off-stream water storage and in-stream water storage interventions.
CONTEXT AND JUSTIFICATION
Over the past 25 years, Ethiopia has performed well in expanding formal and non-formal education opportunities, though ensuring the provision of quality education remains a challenge. Enrolment at all levels has improved substantially and youth and adult literacy rate increased from 27.1% in 1994 to 58.5% in 20151. Primary school (grades 1-8) gross enrolment increased from 22%2 in 1994 to over hundred percent3 in 2015 in most of the regions. Secondary school education increased from 9% in 1984 to 25.6%4 in 2014/15.
