Securing pastoralism in East and West Africa: protecting and promoting livestock mobility. Somaliland/Somali Desk Review

Izzy Birch


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’. Its focus is livestock mobility in Somaliland and the Somali National Regional State (SNRS) of Ethiopia (also called Somali region). These areas share a similar ecology and have strong economic, political and social ties. References are made to relevant experiences elsewhere in Ethiopia and in other Somali-speaking parts of the Horn of Africa.
