In a bid to enhance more collaborations and partnerships with institutions engaged in education, research and action supporting dryland communities, the Centre for Sustainable Dryland Ecosystems and Societies (CSDES) has initiated talks with Practical Action.

Speaking in a meeting held on 10th August 2012 at the CSDES’ office, Grace Mukasa, Practical Action Regional Director, who was accompanied by Mr. Willy Tuimising, team lead on food and agriculture, said that Practical Action is looking forward to a strategic partnership with CSDES. The aim of the partnership is to come up with practical solutions for problems facing communities today. Some of the areas she identified for possible partnerships included; joint research and documentation of best practices, engagement of policy makers, joint fundraising, curriculum development and sharing of contacts.


On his part, Prof. J.T Njoka, CSDES Coordinator welcomed the discussions on the partnership. He acknowledged the role played by Practical Action in seeking solutions that are defined and owned by the community. The Coordinator said that the Centre is very keen to collaborate with institutions that will bring positive impacts on dryland communities.
