In September 2019, during the General Assembly of the Regional Platform of the IGAD Drought Disaster Resilience and Sustainability Initiative (IDDRSI), the second phase of the IDDRSI programming frameworks, made up of the IDDRSI Strategy, Regional Programming Paper and Country Programming Papers, was launched. This meeting was a colourful ceremony that served to celebrate the end of a modestly successful first phase (2013 – 2018) of the IDDRSI Strategy and mark the beginning of a promising new phase. An eighth priority intervention area (PIA), titled ‘Human Capital, Gender and Social Development’ has been included, to bring to the fore the need to invest more in specific areas that would promote the wellbeing of drought-prone communities in the IGAD region. This new PIA forms the theme of the current issue of the Resilience Focus Magazine.
