Securing pastoralism in East and West Africa: protecting and promoting livestock mobility. Chad Desk Review
This is one of a series of desk reviews produced as part of the project ‘Securing Pastoralism in East and West Africa: Protecting and Promoting Livestock Mobility’. Livestock mobility in Chad is important for both seasonal transhumance and access to domestic and international markets. This paper concentrates on the first of these, largely because it was more difficult to access documents on livestock marketing.
The desk review focused on the context affecting livestock mobility and the work of key development and research actors involved in the promotion of livestock mobility.
Livestock mobility is crucial for ensuring high livestock productivity, market access and building prosperous and peaceful societies in the drylands. IIED and partners documented a number of successful initiatives to facilitate mobility and experimented with scenario planning to help empower pastoralists and allow them to influence decisions on policy or resource allocation.
