ThinkSpace: Resilience in the Horn of Africa

On 23 January 2013 in Nairobi, a ThinkSpace on “Resilience in the Horn of Africa” was organised by REGLAP (Regional Learning and Advocacy Programme for Vulnerable Dryland Communities) and IAWG (Inter-Agency Working Group on Disaster Preparedness for East and Central Africa). The aim was to review how different actors have progressed in developing a resilience agenda in the Horn of Africa. The event combined information sharing, learning and reflection in panel discussions around key issues, group discussions and debate. A “marketplace” was set up for agencies to present their resilience work across a range of themes including programmatic interventions and approaches, research outputs, resilience technology and new methodologies. Over 100 people took part in the meeting, coming from the practitioner (humanitarian and development), donor and research communities. The ThinkSpace report shares a summary of the proceedings, conversations and conclusions from the meeting.
