Mobility of livestock:
a vital issue

With the support of Air France, Acting for Life hosted 160 participants from ten countries for a three-day event on agropastoralism. 

Mixed crop and livestock farming allows 20 million people living in West and Central Africa to survive in difficult environments, thanks to transhumance, the cornerstone of a system set up over 40 years ago. With broad expertise in this field, Acting for Life has developed ambitious programs supporting the mobility of livestock in the Sahel over the past decade. Six months ago in Ouagadougou (Burkina Faso), representatives of livestock organizations, local authorities, technicians, legal experts and members of Acting for Life presented their experiences in Mauritania, Senegal, Mali, Burkina Faso, Togo, Benin, Ghana, Ivory Coast and Niger. The conference showcased the shared ideas of people working in the field, and the three days spent exchanging experiences gave everyone a chance to fully grasp the scope and size of the work conducted in this very large field of activity.
