The Resilience Portal is an online space for the IDDRSI Platform members to exchange lessons, experiences and good practices on drought resilience interventions in the Horn of Africa. It provides access to news, information, events, information systems and other resources that support the implementation and coordination of resilience investments in the IGAD region.
This knowledge portal has been developed by the Support for Effective Cooperation and Coordination of the Cross-border Initiatives in Southwest Ethiopia-Northwest Kenya, Marsabit-Borana and Dawa, and Kenya-Somalia-Ethiopia (SECCCI) Project. It provides a common platform for sharing news, events and information resources, disseminate lessons learnt, experiences, and good practices on implementing resilience interventions in the Horn of Africa. It also serves as a repository for new and existing knowledge on drought resilience in the IGAD region, and provideseasy access to validated tools and information systems that could support programming and implementation, investment tracking, project transparency and donor visibility.
Priority Intervention Areas (IDDRSI Pillars)
The IDDRSI Priority Intervention Areas were carefully selected and extensively discussed on the basis of their potential to contribute to enhancing resilience to environmental impact, climate change and natural disasters and promote the sustainable use of natural resources, in the IGAD region. The strategy is also fully harmonized with the objectives of other programming frameworks, including regional, continental and global strategies, such as the IGAD Regional Strategy, the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction, the AU Agenda 2063 and the UN Sustainable Development Goals.
