The Labor-Intensive Works Program (LIWP) provides cash for work for the target households to bridge their consumption gap during shocks and draught. The program increases the productive assets of communities and households and creates temporary employments for the unskilled and semi-skilled urban and rural laborers.
It also aims to raise awareness among the targeted communities about the dangers of malnutrition and damages of Qat, and it builds the capacity and enhances the skills of the target communities to cope with future shocks.
This component supports the target communities with labor-intensive works subprojects in fields of irrigation, water harvesting, agricultural terraces rehabilitation, agricultural land protection and reclamation, maintenance and improvement of village-access roads, the improvement of drinking water sources, watershed management and other fields based on the priority needs of each community.
