Unlocking the Development Potential of Drylands: Lessons from Ethiopia and Uganda

11 Sep 2014

This report is a compilation of evidence based on lessons learnt and best practices identified from a 5-year-Integrated Drylands Development Programme (IDDP)-initiative implemented in Ethiopia and Uganda. The report brings to light the many innovative and sustainable ways that the world's most arid lands can turn the hopelessness of its people into optimism focused on the future. It validates that the specific agricultural strategies borne from the drylands can be replicated anywhere, as these are ultimately based on a conservation mindset, respect for traditional methods and a commitment to involving local communities.
