The DryArc Initiative is a research partnership between eight CGIAR Research Centers that aims to strengthen the resilience of rural communities and agri-food systems across the global drylands of the Middle East and North Africa, South, Central, and West Asia as well as Sub-Saharan Africa, representing the DryArc region.
The four pillars of the DryArc action towards achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) are:
- combining knowledge (local, regional, international) to design systemic innovations,
- accelerating scaling up of impactful target innovations,
- continuous integration of disruptive technologies,
- and enabling institutional environment (decision-making, M&E, absorptive capacity, investment).
