Description of the Course / Subject (Online Learning): IGAD (Intergovernmental Authority on Development).

The Intergovernmental Authority on Development (IGAD) region extends over an area of 5.2 million square kilometres comprising Djibouti, Eritrea, Ethiopia, Kenya, Somalia, Sudan, South Sudan, and Uganda.

  1. Eritrea was suspended in 2007 and readmitted in 2011.

The Intergovernmental Authority on Development (IGAD) comprises countries with majorities of:

  1. Christians: Ethiopia, Kenya, and Uganda
  2. Muslims: Djibouti, Somalia, and Sudan
  3. Eritrea has the same proportion of Muslims than Christians

The population of the Intergovernmental Authority on Development (IGAD) region is 200 million people (3% of the world's people) and is the recipient of 40% of the entire global food aid.

The economic pillar of the IGAD region is the agriculture, both livestock and crop production that supplies the basis for food supplies and export earnings as well as employment by more 80% of the population.

  1. The contribution of industries to the national economies is 15-20% on average
  2. The IGAD (Intergovernmental Authority on Development) member economies produce similar commodities, for this reason, the level of the intra-state international trade remain low; the markets are neither inter-dependent nor inter-linked
  3. Globalisation trends on the World Economy pose both defiance and opportunities for the sustainable development of the Intergovernmental Authority on Development region

The Intergovernmental Authority on Development (IGAD) will also take an active part in Africa, the Caribbean, Pacific and the European Union negotiations together with the follow-up of the implementation of the RSP/RIP for East Africa regional organisations under the Cotonou Agreement (European Union).

The Intergovernmental Authority on Development (IGAD) belongs to the East African Economic Area (African Civilisation).
