“The cycle of the droughts nowadays is about two years, and each time three to four million people are affected,” remarked the Executive Secretary of IGAD, Eng. Mahboub Maalim to the Somali delegates from the Transitional Federal Government, Somaliland and Puntland who were at the IGAD Headquarters for consultation meeting on Drought Resilience programs funded by the African Development Bank (AfDB).

“In addition, we have the highest number of IDPs, we have the highest number of displaced people, and we have the highest number of migration,” he pointed out. “This matter requires serious thinking and strategy.”

Earlier the AfDB announced a $300 million pledge for drought resilience programs in the IGAD region.
