Project description:

Funded by the European Union Trust Fund for Africa, the Building Opportunities for Resilience in the Horn of Africa (BORESHA) project's overall objective is to promote economic development and greater resilience, particularly among vulnerable groups in the Mandera Triangle. The project will adopt a community-driven approach to address the shared nature of the risks and opportunities on in this border area.
It is part of the EU's programme for Collaboration in the Cross-Border areas of the Horn of Africa, providing over 60 million euros of investment to prevent and mitigate the impact of local conflict and to promote economic development and greater resilience in four different cross-border regions.
