Overview

The Drylands Development Programme (DryDev) is a six-year initiative (August 2013 to July 2019) funded by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MoFA) of the Netherlands, with a substantial contribution from World Vision Australia (WVA). With the World Agroforestry Centre (ICRAF) as the overall implementing agency, this integrated development programme is being implemented by a consortium of five National Lead Organizations (NLOs) and 16 Implementation Partners (IPs) 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.
