USAID PREG Cross County Learning Brief 2024


Kenya’s 23 counties in the arid and semi-arid lands (ASALs) cover 89% of the country and support 38% of the population1. ASAL counties have continued to experience sporadic rainfall, recurrent shocks of drought, floods, and human conflict.

To address these challenges, USAID is investing more than $500 million in ASAL counties in Kenya to increase resilience and economic growth among pastoralist communities to increase adaptability, reduce risk, and improve social and economic conditions to target causes of vulnerability.

The USAID Partnership for Resilience and Economic Growth (PREG) network in Kenya brings together humanitarian and development partners to build resilience and accelerate economic growth among the vulnerable pastoralist communities in Northern Kenya. The PREG network is operational in six ASAL counties including Isiolo, Garissa, Turkana, Marsabit, Samburu, and Wajir.

The network unites multiple USAID program implementing partners working with the National Government, the National Drought  Management Authority (NDMA), County Governments, the private sector, and local communities to coordinate resilience and economic growth activities. The coordination and integration of complementary humanitarian and development assistance activities allow USAID and partners to adjust as communities increase resilience over time and enable partners to leverage knowledge and resources.
