This publication summarises the findings of the modelling undertaken for PAP cattle systems in Oromia, southern Ethiopia. The resilience of some PAP systems to drought has been eroded in recent years due to three underlying causes: natural factors, resource expropriations, and poor infrastructure and capacity. There is also evidence of a widening gap between feed demand and feed supply in Oromia. This work looks in detail at four measures to improve resilience: (1) Index-based livestock insurance (IBLI), (2) Commercial destocking with an early warning system (EWS), (3) Rangeland restoration (RR) and (4) Fodder planting (FP).
