Reinforcement of Pastoral Civil Society in East Africa 1st six-month report October 2002 to March 2003
This is a report on the first six months of the programme on Reinforcement of Pastoral Civil Society in East Africa.
The programme is currently in the first four-year phase of what constitutes a long-term strategy to contribute to the emergence of a strong and independent pastoral civil society movement, capable of influencing the design and implementation of policies to improve pastoral livelihoods in East Africa.
The programme, currently funded by the Department for International Development (DFID) and the Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation (SDC), is implemented ~by Resource Conflict Institute (RECONCILE) and the Drylands Programme of the International Institute of Environment and Development (IIED). It is implemented in partnership with a coalition of pastoral civil society organisations, NGOs, national and regional-level pastoral projects and research organisations active in the pastoral regions of East Africa.
