Need for the project
The need for this project emanated from the necessity to address the damages and losses sustained by the population, especially the poor and vulnerable communities living in the Arid and Semi-arid lands (ASALs), during the 2008-2011 drought in order to restore normalcy and resumption of economic and social activities.
