Horn of Africa

90 projects

The Horn of Africa region faces challenges that go beyond country borders: climate change, forced displacement, demographic pressures, environmental stresses, various forms of conflict, trafficking of human beings and smuggling of migrants, as well as organised crime and violent extremism.  Our approach to address these challenges is geographically comprehensive and holistic, putting the region at the centre of our response.  On some projects, we are working with the regional organisation IGAD (Intergovernmental Authority on Development), building on areas of work in which IGAD is active, such as durable solutions for refugees, peace and security and resilience building, and harmonisation of national policies and strategies.
