Pastoralism - A system under Threat

A newspaper supplement titled "Pastoralism a System under Threatˇ± appeared in the New Vision of Thursday 20th June 2013. It highlighted the contribution of livestock to the economy and the environment as well as how pastoralism friendly policies and other well intentioned interventions at national, regional and continental levels were receiving lip service by governments. In addition, it pointed out challenges that pastoralists face given the non responsive policies and prejudice from the public. 

The article ended with recommended actions for governments which include: increasing disaster preparedness and budget allocation for social services and livestock in pastoralist areas as well as provision of infrastructure and security of land tenure for pastoralists.
