Rationale for the
2020 regional share fair
The regional share fair was a continuation of the work supported by FAO through the regional project “Support to the regional initiative on resilience in the Sahel and Horn of Africa”. This project facilitated the documentation of national and regional resilience good practices in IGAD. The regional good practices were published as a booklet that has been disseminated in print and electronic version:
tuned in over the week-long event
submitted in the call for proposals
selected and presented live
selected and shared at the Virtual Exhibition Hall
