The Horn of Africa Resilience Measurement Workshop

Theme: Application of Evidence for Decision Making in Resilience Programming

The Horn of Africa Resilience Measurement Workshop was held on May 13 – 16, 2019, at Lake Victoria Serena, Entebbe, Uganda. The aim of the workshop was to discuss and explore “Application of Evidence for Decision Making in Resilience Programming”.  The workshop participants included resilience analysts, policy makers, and program staff best placed to translate emerging resilience evidence from the Horn of Africa into concrete actions. The event was organized by USAID Horn of Africa Resilience Network (HORN), USAID Kenya and East Africa, the USAID Center for Resilience, Africa Lead and the Resilience Evaluation, Analysis and Learning (REAL) Associate Award.

The main objectives of the workshop were to:

  • Understand evidence emerging from resilience research in the Horn of Africa.
  • Explore common resilience trends and themes across countries.
  • Translate learning into country plans and a future learning agenda.

The event was also attended by Christine Gottschalk, Acting Director, USAID Center for Resilience; H. E. Amb (Eng) Mahboub Maalim, Intergovernmental Authority on Development (IGAD); Greg Collins, Deputy Assistant Administrator, USAID Bureau for Food Security and USAID Resilience Coordinator and Heather Schildge, USAID Kenya/East Africa, Deputy Mission Director.

The outcomes of the workshop included the recognition that resilience measurement and analysis still is an evolving field with the process being iterative. Further, it was acknowledged that resilience capacities and responses are multidimensional and demonstrated at multiple levels calling for multiple rounds of high-level and deep dive inquiries.

Participants noted the need for deepened strategic and operational coordination between programs and actors for effective resilience building; as well as the need for responsive governments and administrations to support the resilience building activities. They further agreed that resilience programming should be scaled up to regional and cross-border areas for maximum impacts within the HoA region.
