Review of the legislative and institutional environment governing livestock mobility in East and West Africa
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’.
It summaries the legislative and institutional environment governing livestock mobility East and West Africa, at the local, national, regional and continental levels, with a specific focus on nine countries (Chad, Ethiopia, Niger, Nigeria, Somaliland, Sudan, Burkina Faso, Mali and Mauritania).
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.
