Supporting Pastoralism and Agriculture in Recurrent and Protracted Crisis (SPARC) aims to generate evidence and address knowledge gaps to build the resilience of millions of pastoralists, agro-pastoralists and farmers in sub-Saharan Africa and the Middle East.

Our ambition is to use research and evidence to develop knowledge that will enhance the way the UK Department for International Development (DFID), donors, non-governmental organisations, local and national governments and civil society can empower these communities in the context of climate change.

We have two main goals:

  • To carry out new research on how programmes and projects that deliver support to agro-pastoralists, pastoralists and farmers can be designed, implemented and evaluated more effectively.
  • To support innovation and the use of technology in DFID and partner programmes.
