Reintegration Assistance. Good, Promising and Innovative Practices

The “Creating Livelihoods through Environmental Rehabilitation in Ethiopia” project, implemented in the framework of the EU-IOM Joint Initiative for Migrant Protection and Reintegration, improved the socioeconomic conditions of migrants who returned to two villages of the Habru District in Ethiopia, whilst simultaneously rehabilitating the environment and enhancing access to water and food availability for local communities.

The Habru District, like many other communities in the country, is subject to chronic and transitory food insecurity. A major cause for this is environmental degradation, which creates a multitude of negative effects.

Over the course of 16 months, this small-scale community project, implemented in collaboration with the Ethiopian Evangelical Church Mekane Yesus Development and Social Services Commission and other local partners, mobilized returnees and community members to tackle several challenges experienced by returnees in Ethiopia.
