CARE, Plan and ICRISAT propose to implement the Enhancing Community Resilience and Sustainability (ECRAS) project in Chiredzi and Mwenezi Districts, aimed at increasing the capacities of communities to sustain development gains and achieve improved well-being outcomes in the face of shocks and stresses. Through this project, ECRAS envisions the objective of enhancing Chiredzi and Mwenezi household and community resilience by improving their absorptive, adaptive and transformative capacities. By the end of the project, households and communities in the two districts will have increased capacity to access assets, opportunities and wider choices to improve their wellbeing outcomes and withstand shocks and stresses in a favourable enabling environment.
