Bringing science and development together through news and analysis

UN Development Programme Drylands Development Centre

Based in Nairobi, Kenya, this centre helps countries in dry regions with their poverty alleviation planning, research, analysis and capacity-building efforts. The centre was founded in 1973 in response to recurring droughts in the Sahel. It was known then as the UN Sudano-Sahelian Office and was based in Burkina Faso carrying out relief and development work. {{LINK_LABEL_GO_TO_WEBSITE}}
