Goal 2: Food, Agriculture and Disaster Risk Reduction

Food, Agriculture and Disaster Risk Reduction

The Eastern Africa Food Agriculture and Disaster Risk Reduction (FADRR) Programme seeks to establish productive and disaster resilient systems for food and livestock production and improved livelihood security. We are committed to enabling poor people living in fragile ecosystems in Eastern Africa to exploit and benefit equitably from new political, economic and technological opportunities while remaining resilient in the face of climate change. We promote:

  • Sustainable household food security;
  • Participatory approaches to development planning;
  • Community based extension systems (for animal health delivery);
  • Resilience building and climate-smart food production systems;
  • Gender mainstreaming;
  • Integration of market approaches within programme; and
  • Policy Advocacy
