Drought Resilience in Sub-Saharan Africa

This event series is organized in the margins of the “One World – No Hunger” Initiative by the UNCCD, the German Development Institute (DIE), the University of Bonn, German Corporation for International Cooperation (GIZ), the Center of Development Research (ZEF), Deutsche Welle (DW), the Reconstruction Credit Institute (KfW) and the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ). The event series will run from 6 April-13 July and will seek to shed light on four interconnected topics around drought: What role does drought particularly in Sub-Saharan Africa play for food security, for livelihoods in rural areas, for local and regional conflicts and for migration; How can drought resilience be strengthened, which sectors have to be addressed and contribute, what solutions exist in the various areas; Given the multi-faceted nature and interconnectedness of drought related issues, how can integrated approaches and institutional coherence be found in order to identify solutions, minimize cross-sectoral trade-offs and harnessing synergies; and The complexity of the issues also means that a particularly close dialogue is needed between scientists and development practitioners in order to challenge conventional wisdoms, to evaluate old and find new solutions.
