The Regional Learning and Advocacy Programme or REGLAP (which was known previously as the Regional Pastoral Livelihoods Advocacy Project) is funded by ECHO (European Commission Humanitarian Office) and aims to reduce the vulnerability of pastoral communities through policy and practice change in the Horn and East Africa.

REGLAP also seeks to promote the integration of humanitarian assistance with development interventions through disaster risk reduction (DRR) among governments, donors and national and international CSOs (civil society organisations).
