Water; Drought; Capacity Building Topics old


​Droughts do not only affect human livelihood, but they also discourage investment in the agricultural sector, hinder economic development, obstruct peace-building efforts, and carry the risk of invoking repeated violent conflicts. Hence, this program deals with drought and water scarcity as well as developing disaster risk reduction and community resilience through technology transfer, capacity building, regional support initiatives and extension training programmes.
