African Drought Risk and Development Network Newsletter August 2010

The African Drought Risk and Development Network (ADDN) is a region-wide network for advocacy, capacity building and peer learning. It was initiated by the United Nations Development Programme Drylands Development Centre (UNDP-DDC) and UN’s International Strategy for Disaster Reduction (ISDR) in 2005 with the aim to promote applied discussion and policy dialogue on key issues linking drought risk and development in Africa. A wealth of knowledge-based resources exists in Africa, yet the opportunities for sharing successful experiences, disseminating lessons learnt and up-scaling innovative practices are still limited. The ADDN seeks to bridge the gaps between knowledge producers and users and improve stakeholders’ access to information that will help them better react to the increased threat of drought and climate change in the dryland of Africa.
This monthly E-Newsletter is published by the ADDN Secretariat on behalf of Network participants to keep the interested stakeholders up-to-date on ADDN activities and highlight other selected drought risk reduction/management related networking opportunities, projects/programmes and events taking place in Africa at local, national sub-regional and region-wide levels. All the previous issues of the ENewsletter are available for download at

Please contact Yuko Kurauchi at for any comments you may have on this ENewsletter and/or for any information you would like to share with over 1,500 ADDN Newsletter subscribers in Africa and beyond.
