Since its establishment in 1954 Haramaya University’s (HU) involvement in training, research and community engagement has been increasing from time to time. To enable it reach more communities and conduct problem solving and tailored research activities, HU has created partnerships with other institutions and projects in different areas. Under the coordination of its College of Law, HU is one of the many partners implementing Pastoralist Areas Resiliency Improvement through Market Expansion (PRIME) Project, a five years USAID funded program working in three pastoralist areas of the country: Afar, Ethiopian Somali and Oromia (Borana and Guji). HU serves as Research and Development and Policy advisory arm of the project. Accordingly, it has conducted more than thirty (30) interdisciplinary and tailored researches and assessments in the last three years, which were basically meant to inform implementation of project activities and provide evidence for policy makers. After long ups and downs, HU-PRIME project has published its first proceeding which consists of twelve (12) researches conducted by HU-PRIME staffs.
