Policy Brief: Investment in drylands: widening the benefits for food security and development

After decades of comparative neglect, the
drylands of the Horn of Africa are experiencing
an unprecedented surge of investment. Largescale
infrastructure projects now dominate
national development plans. They represent a
welcome renewal of interest by states in drylands
and an opportunity to reduce long-standing
inequalities in the provision of public goods and
services. Uneven investment has been a barrier
to formal private sector engagement; it has also
left pastoralists more vulnerable to shocks and
ill-equipped to take advantage of processes
of economic transformation. Of all types of
investment, state-driven investment should
provide for the greater public good. Careful
planning and management will be required if
it is to contribute to inclusive growth rather than
deepen inequality.
