Building Climate Change Resilience for African Livestock in Sub-Saharan Africa

28 July 2011 | Downloads - publication

This scoping study was carried out to identify entry points for building the resilience of livestock systems to climate change and variability. 

The study explores how strengthening the resilience of African livestock systems to climate change, and making current investments to improve African livestock coping mechanisms, can improve the climate resilience of small-holder farmers and pastoralists. The study was implemented in 2009 through two sub-regional reviews (one in eastern and southern Africa, the second in West and Central Africa), six country visits (Kenya, Namibia, Malawi, Cameroon, Niger and Mali), and an e-conference.
