Who we are

Drylands Learning and Capacity Building Initiative (DLCI) is a knowledge management and advocacy resource organization registered in Kenya with the aim of improving policy and practice in the  Horn of Africa. Previously known as REGLAP (the Regional Learning and Advocacy programme), it supports collaborative learning and documentation on drylands development and advocacy. DLCI currently focuses its capacity-building support in Kenya but draws from and disseminates findings to other countries with substantial drylands in the HoA. DLCI  provides knowledge management, research, monitoring and evaluation, facilitation, advocacy, and communications services, and is a willing partner with organizations sharing similar values and objectives.
