Contexte
The Horn of Africa is one of the world’s most food insecure regions. The Intergovernmental Authority for Development (IGAD) is a regional inter-governmental organisation that aims to expand areas of cooperation . between its 8 members (Djibouti, Kenya, Ethiopia, Eritrea, Somalia, South Sudan, Sudan and Uganda) and to promote peace and stability in the region in order to attain food security, sustainable environmental management and sustainable development

In 2014, IGAD approached the Stockholm International Water Institute (SIWI), seeking support for the development of their Regional Water Policy. Consequently, Adam Smith International (ASI) and SIWI, supported by the Global Water Partnership, joined forces to explore potential opportunities in designing a comprehensive, regional water security and climate resilience programme for IGAD. Funding for the research was provided by CDKN.

Objectif (s)
The project had two specific objectives : * Improve the capacity of IGAD to develop fundable proposals for climate-resilient water management projects within its region from its current level * Increase the available knowledge on climate finance in the water sector in the IGAD region.

Description
The project team responded to both the expressed needs of IGAD and donors through the proposed IGAD Climate Resilient Investment Facility ‘ICRIF’. ICRIF aims to establish an international transaction service provider to mobilise the existing IDDRSI funding toward infrastructure development in the short term, while working with the IGAD Water Unit and Secretariat to strengthen gradually their capacity to take on these functions in the medium term. In addition, the project sought to build the capacities and enhance skills of the relevant IGAD officials through a IGAD-CRIDF study tour. This proved to be an effective method t build understanding of, and ownership for ICRIF among the IGAD officials.
