The University of Nairobi (UoN) through the Centre for Sustainable Dryland Ecosystems and Societies (CSDES) and the Intergovernmental Authority on Development (IGAD) will continue to collaborate so as to strengthen community resilience in the drylands.

This was revealed on Monday, 22nd July 2013 when Dr. John Kabayo, IGAD Consultant led a team of five members of staff from IGAD on fact finding mission to the UoN- Centre for Sustainable Dryland Ecosystem and Societies. Dr. Kebayo said that Kenya had been tasked with the responsibility of championing drought resilience in IGAD and so UoN had been identified as a strategic partner.

Dr. Kabayo said that IGAD looked forward to forge stronger partnership with UoN. He called on CSDES to develop a strategic direction that will address the needs of drylands.
