Revised deadline for Submission October 15, 2014

The Resilience Focus magazine aims at providing a platform for sharing views and experiences between and among planners, facilitators, practitioners and beneficiaries of the IGAD Drought Resilience and Sustainability Initiative (IDDRSI). The Resilience Focus intends to highlight contemporary resilience issues to re-enforce the attributes of the IDDRSI Platform as a functioning family campfire. It will portray the challenges, identifying opportunities and defining the way forward in the implementation of the Drought Resilience Initiative. The magazine is a collective effort of drought resilience stakeholders involved and/or interested in the implementation of the IDDRSI throughout the IGAD Region. The magazine will be produced biannually by the IGAD Secretariat in collaboration with its IDDRSI partners.
