East Africa Community and ASALs Cabinet Secretary Rebecca Miano has acknowledged the kind of resilience exhibited by communities in the ASALs.
Hon Miano notes
“Communities in the arid and semi–arid land counties have demonstrate great resilience in the face of adversity.
My team and I are working on a recovery plan including both short and long-term interventions as well as strengthening partnerships in disaster response.
As we systematically address the effects of devastating drought caused by five consecutive failed rain seasons, we held consultations with the communities on drought mitigation and post-drought recovery strategies.
Earlier today, I visited and distributed relief food to Kinna, Duse and Rapsu areas as part of my working tour of Isiolo County.”
