Who we are

The Drylands Learning and Capacity Building Initiative for improved policy and practice in the Horn of Africa (DLCI) is a knowledge management and advocacy resource organization registered in Kenya. Previously known as REGLAP (the Regional Learning and Advocacy programme), it supports collaborative learning and documentation on drylands development and advocacy for improved policy and practice. DLCI currently focuses its capacity building support in Kenya but draws from and disseminates findings to other countries with substantial drylands in the HoA.

Vision: People in the drylands of the Horn of Africa are empowered and equitably represented in resilience and development policy and practice.

Mission: To promote evidence-based policy and practice amongst dryland stakeholders.

Core values:

  1. Support the rights of all individuals in the drylands to fully participate in their development.
  2. Promote transparency, accountability, collaboration and synergy of dryland actors.
