The Third African Drought Adaptation Forum was held 17th-19th September 2008 at the United Nations Conference Centre, Addis Ababa. This three-day workshop was sponsored by the United Nations Development Program’s Drylands Development Centre (UNDP-DDC), UN-International Strategy for Disaster Reduction (UN-ISDR) and the hosts the Economic Commission for Africa (UNECA). It brought together some 80 policy makers, government officials, UN agencies, donors, practitioners from local and international NGO’s and CBO’s, the media and applied researchers from around Africa, and the Arab states to exchange practical experiences, findings and ideas on how to adapt to the increasing threat of drought and climate change in the drylands of Africa.
