Taadoud Transition to Development Project (SHARP)
Taadoud is a three-year, six member INGO partnership led by Catholic Relief Services that aims to support conflict-affected households to rebuild their livelihoods and to prepare them to deal with future shocks and stresses. Feinstein and Ahfad University for Women are the the operational research partners, aiming to strengthen the impact of resilience-related actions and interventions through:
- improving understanding and analysis of resilience in the Darfur context using a livelihoods lens
- increasing the capacity of local, national, and international stakeholders in resilience approaches and operational research
The research analyzes how livelihood systems have been affected by the multiple shocks experienced in Darfur, the choices families have made to sustain themselves throughout, and the extent to which they have been successful. The field research was conducted in two phases: 1. a scoping study and 2. follow-up field research in West, South, and East Darfur. Together, these studies contribute to our understanding of resilience in the Darfur context, the nature of resilience in general, and provides guidance toward promoting resilience.
Taadoud is implemented across all five Darfur states in over 200 communities.
