The Horn of Africa Resilience Workshop gathered more than 100 participants for four days in Entebbe, Uganda, to discuss and understand emerging resilience evidence from the region and translate it into action. Participants included field- and headquarter-based resilience analysts, policy makers, and program staff representing USAID and implementing partners in Ethiopia, the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), Kenya, Somalia, South Sudan, and Uganda.
The specific objectives of the workshop were to:
- Understand evidence emerging from resilience research in the Horn of Africa
- Explore common resilience trends and themes across countries
- Translate learning into next steps for countries and a future learning agenda
