Titre : IGAD-FAO Partnership Programme (PP) on Building Resilience for (Agro-) Pastoralist Communities

IGAD and FAO will jointly contribute to build resilience of communities in the Horn of Africa’s cross-border areas by addressing marketing and trade, transboundary animal diseases and natural resources management. It will also contribute to strengthen the capacity of IGAD specialized agencies to lead the regional agenda for the improvement of cross-border pastoral livelihoods.

Pays/Région : Corne de l’Afrique

Durée : 01.05.2014 - 31.12.2020

Over 30% of the inhabitants of the Arid and Semi-Arid Lands in the Horn of Africa are pastoralists who depend on livestock for their livelihoods. Their livelihoods and related natural resources have been badly affected by frequent droughts, conflicts, insecurity, overgrazing, bush encroachment, and longstanding marginalization, exposing them to vulnerability and susceptibility to shocks. This is further aggravated by unfavorable policies, poor quality of and access to services and infrastructure, and low investments. As a result of the devastating 2011 famine in the Horn of Africa, IGAD launched the “IGAD Drought Disaster Resilience and Sustainability Initiative” IDDRSI strategy that aims at ending drought emergencies through increased commitment by affected countries and Development Partners to support investments in sustainable development.

Enhanced resilience to drought resulting in improved food and nutrition security of communities and households in ASAL.

Groupes cibles
* Communities in drought- and conflict-affected cross-border ASAL areas. Vulnerable groups (women, children and youth, elderly & disabled people) are primary targets. * Formal / informal groups such as CBOs, farmer/pastoralist associations & cooperatives are among the direct beneficiaries. * Actors involved in policy analysis and implementation. These include public institutions of Member States, and in particular decentralized government units (counties, woredas, and districts). * Private sector enterprises especially Small and Medium Enterprises ; Public-Private-Partnerships. * IGAD specialised institutions (ICPALD, ICPAC, CEWARN, ISTVS).
