DLCI promotes improved policy and practice in the drylands area by encouraging development actors to document and disseminate their learning and advocate for improved policy and practice. It is increasingly focusing on capacity building of citizens and local governments. DLCI which started in 2014 is currently focusing on the following key activities:
Strengthening capacities of governments and communities to work together to promote peaceful and inclusive development.
To promote the evidence base for improved policy and practice.
To promote synergy and coordination of key stakeholders for scale-up and deepening of interventions.
To ensure that DLCI is an efficient and effective organization to implement its strategic plan.
DLCI is run by a Management Board of Directors who have over 10 years’ experience in drylands issues in the region. The Board is largely made up of people from the dryland regions, from civil society, academia, and government.
DLCI has a number of safeguards policies including child protection and prevention of sexual exploitation of abuse. These are included in all staff contracts and board policies and are regularly updated and reviewed.
DLCI believes that having a well-managed mechanism for handling external complaints can improve the quality of its work, enhance the trust and confidence of stakeholders, identify areas of work that need to be improved, and ensure that DLCI learns from the feedback provided through this process.
