The Nairobi Summit assigned the IGAD Secretariat the role of implementing that decision leading to the development of the IGAD Drought Disaster Resilience and Sustainability Initiative (IDDRSI), the Regional Programming Paper (RPP) and the Country Programming Papers (CPPs). The IGAD Secretariat considered the importance of gender mainstreaming and women's empowerment in the IDDRSI strategy, RPP and CPPs as critical towards promoting gender equality, ensuring efficient utilization of resources in addressing the deep-seated poverty, environmental degradation, the effects of the devastating drought in the region and in building sustainable resilience of communities and households of the IGAD region and thus commissioned a consultant to carry out gender analysis of these programme documents.
