Drought risk management, natural resource management and social protection: new alliances for sustainability and resilience

There is a close link between three areas of rural life in poor countries which are usually not regarded together: Drought crises, natural resource management of landscapes, and social protection. How can local communities – supported by governments, development and humanitarian agencies – protect and restore landscapes, the natural resources therein and the livelihoods that rely on them, before, during and after drought crises? This session explores research and policy pathways to improving the nexus of drought risk management, natural resource management and social protection (the DNS Nexus) across the African continent.
