These guidelines are for the use of Facilitation Team members working with the project “Improving Nutrition and Household Food Security in Northern Shewa, Amhara Region and Southern Tigray” (GCP/ETH/056/BEL).

The development objective of the project is to improve the nutrition and food security status of selected communities in four woredas, namely Lalomama and Gera-Keya in North Shewa and Enderta and Hintalo Wajerat in southern Tigray. The project will apply a bottom-up, participatory community action planning process, in line with Ethiopia’s decentralisation process, to ensure that locally appropriate micro-projects can be identified and implemented to improve the nutrition and food security situations of the rural poor.
