E-CONFERENCE: Maintaining Mobility and Managing Drought: Policy Options for Pastoral Livelihoods in Sub-Saharan Africa (Alive/ LEAD)
ALIVE and FAO/LEAD are pleased to invite you to participate in the electronic conference "Maintaining Mobility and Managing Drought - Policy options for Pastoral Livelihoods in sub-Saharan Africa" to be held from 18 October to 13 December 2006. The goal of this e-conference is to discuss and review two policy option papers "Community-Based Drought Management for the Pastoral Livestock Sector in Sub-Saharan Africa" and "Investing in Maintaining Mobility in Pastoral Systems of the Arid and Semi-Arid Regions of Sub-Saharan Africa" that have been written for the ALIVE multi-actor Partnership. These policy option papers are meant to inform African policy-makers and decision makers in international and financial institutions on the latest developments in key areas important for sustainable livestock development, and provide them with a range of policy options to address the potentials and constraints of the different segments of the livestock sector.
