Response, Recovery, Resilience – Voices and images from dryland communities managing climate and environmental shocks
Main Courtyard area KICC
12:00 ~ 12:00 (CET)
The Global Center on Adaptation emphasises that transformative change in climate-adapted drylands in Africa requires, among others, that local initiatives are empowered, local market links and capacities are reinforced, local voice and agency is strengthened, and support is provided to facilitate documentation and exchange of local practices. In the aftermath of severe droughts in Eastern Africa and the Horn, this action hub event brings together community voices to spotlight and illustrate the positive ways that affected communities responded and are recovering from the recent drought and the ways they seek to build resilience against future climate and environmental shocks.
