Consolidated Programme Implementation plan 2015-2018: Drylands Development Programme (DryDev)
The Drylands Development Programme (DRYDEV) is a five‐year initiative (August 2013 to July 2018) funded by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MoFA) of the Netherlands, with a significant financial contribution from World Vision Australia (WVA). The World Agroforestry Centre (ICRAF) is the overall implementing agency. DRYDEV is designed to provide relevant and contextually appropriate support to smallholder farmers in selected dryland areas of Burkina Faso, Mali, Niger, Ethiopia, and Kenya. It is seeking to meaningfully contribute to the realization of a vision where households residing in such areas have transitioned from subsistence farming and emergency aid to sustainable rural development. The purpose of this programme implementation plan (PIP) is to complement and build upon the Inception Report by presenting how DRYDEV’s underlying strategy will be operationalized in the five participating countries, as well as how ICRAF will successfully manage, coordinate, and technically support the programme. Section 2 starts by presenting ICRAF’s Coordination PIP. Here, the DRYDEV coordination team is first presented, including the primary role of each member. The key areas—called coordination support areas (CSAs)—where ICRAF will play an important role in managing, coordinating, and technically supporting the programme are then described.
