The Resiliência Integrada na Nutrição e Agricultura activity (RESINA) is a five year $29.5M activity that integrates WASH ($5M), Nutrition ($4M) and Agriculture ($20.5) funding. RESINA will identify, analyze, prioritize, and address the key drivers of chronic poverty, food security, and malnutrition by strengthening the resilience capacities of targeted vulnerable households and communities. The activity seeks to support adaptation to and transformation in the face of shocks and stresses through a systems-based approach, enabling households to recover and pursue pathways out of poverty. It is an integrated agriculture-focused activity that includes nutrition and WASH funding for improved nutrition and clean water access, including for productive uses. In line with USAID’s approach to Resilience, the activity is designed to layer, sequence, and integrate interventions in coordination with other USAID mechanisms in the Resilience Focus Zone (RFZ). These activities include: the Resilience and Food Security Activity (RFSA) currently under design with the USAID Bureau for Humanitarian Assistance, Transform Nutrition (Nampula), the LOGOS Local Government activity, and the forthcoming Market Systems Development agriculture activity (PREMIER), Transform WASH, among others. RESINA will combine agriculture, water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH), and Nutrition funding to address programmatic gaps and approaches to build resilience of vulnerable households and communities in the target zone. The word “RESINA” in Portuguese means resin, the substance produced by plants to protect them from insects and pathogens. As resin increases resilience of plants, RESINA is designed to Increase resilience of smallholder farmers and rural households in selected districts of Zambezia and Nampula provinces.
