Resilience Focus Magazine issue No 08

Authors: IGAD
Date: 2032
Type: Magazine


The IGAD Drought Disaster Resilience and Sustainability Initiative (IDDRSI) has celebrated its Tenth Anniversary. The Resilience Focus Magazine (RFM), which was initiated during the first Phase of IDDRSI, dedicated Issue No. 8 to the Tenth Anniversary of IDDRSI. As we mark ten years of implementation of resilience projects within the framework of IDDRSI, I would like to take this opportunity to strongly appeal to the Member States and Development Partners to intensify investments in resilience projects, with special emphasis on the arid and semi-arid community who are more often than not affected by multiple hazards. In the Special Issue of the RFM, project-level communications, journalistic accounts on drought, and scientific articles are presented. Articles of the issue address most of the IDDRSI of the eight Priority Intervention Areas (PIAs) directly, while the exhibit evidence related to Priority Intervention Area 5: Research, Knowledge Management & Technology Transfer, indirectly, as there are a number of knowledge products.
