The Intergovernmental Authority on Development (IGAD), in partnership with the Permanent Interstate Committee for Drought Control in the Sahel (CILSS) and the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO), is organizing The Horn of Africa and Sahel Virtual Knowledge Share Fair: Promoting innovation to build resilience against climate shocks. The virtual event will be hosted online from the 20th to 22nd of October 2020.

In many parts of the Horn of Africa and the Sahel, the scale and frequency of disasters and emergencies have been on the rise. Natural disasters connected to climate change and human-made crises have created conditions of chronic vulnerability. With a limited capacity to cope with the impact of these shocks, the pastoral and agro-pastoral communities in these regions are faced with extreme poverty, persistent food insecurity, widespread economic hardships and untold human suffering. Thus, it is critical that stakeholders continue to support these communities in their quest to build their resilience by providing multifaceted and novel solutions.

The overall objective of the share fair is to strengthen resilience knowledge transfer and cooperation between Horn of Africa and Sahel regions. The specific objectives of the share fair are to

gather the good practices and lessons learnt from Horn of Africa and Sahel regions on preparedness and response to drought and other shocks, support evidence- based decision making on key thematic areas, strengthen exchanges and collaboration between resilience actors in both regions, and support the harmonization of resilience-building language between partners.
