The Horn of Africa and Sahel Knowledge Share Fair: Promoting innovation to build resilience against climate shocks

In light of the continuing COVID-19 crisis, the Knowledge Share Fair, set to take place in July, has been postponed until October 2020 (20-22nd). The event will also now be fully virtual, with remote panels and presentations all hosted online. With these changes in mind, we have extended the original deadline for proposal submissions to June 30th. 

The Intergovernmental Authority on Development (IGAD), in partnership with the Permanent Interstate Committee for Drought Control in the Sahel (CILSS) and the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO), is organizing The Horn of Africa and Sahel Virtual Knowledge Share Fair: Promoting innovation to build resilience against climate shocks. The virtual event will be hosted online from the 20th to 22nd of October 2020.

The overall objective of the share fair is to strengthen resilience knowledge transfer and cooperation between Horn of Africa and Sahel regions. The specific objectives of the share fair are to (i) gather the good practices and lessons learnt from Horn of Africa and Sahel regions on preparedness and response to drought and other shocks, (ii) support evidence- based decision making on key thematic areas, (iii) strengthen exchanges and collaboration between resilience actors in both regions, and (iv) support the harmonization of resilience-building language between partners.

The planned 2020 share fair will build on previous efforts by both IGAD and CILSS to promote knowledge management for informed decision-making and investment. It will be an opportunity to consolidate and disseminate the lessons learned from the IGAD and CILSS regional share fairs and learning events to the core community of stakeholders implementing the IGAD Drought Disaster Resilience and Sustainability Initiative (IDDRSI) and Global Alliance for Resilience (AGIR).

The deadline to submit proposals for the chance to present the good practice at the Share Fair is 30 June.

IGAD, CILSS and FAO would like to invite all partners to respond to the call for proposals and take advantage of this unique opportunity to disseminate and promote good practices for upscaling investments and policies in the Horn of Africa and Sahel regions.
