2018 – Strengthening Cross-border Cooperation in the IGAD Clusters.

Around sixty participants from the IGAD Secretariat and the Member States were in Isiolo, Kenya, from 6-8 August 2018 to take part in an inaugural IGAD knowledge share fair, whose theme was Strengthening Cross-border Cooperation in the IGAD Clusters.

The aim of the share fair was to contribute to an increased understanding of the operational context in IGAD clusters and enhance the integrated cluster approach in the implementation of the IGAD Drought Disaster Resilience and Sustainability Initiative (IDDRSI). The event was expected to highlight the dynamics of cross-border cooperation and consolidate the principles and methodologies for successful cross-border development within the IGAD region.

The virtual event is organized with the support of the European Union.
