Issue 007 - The future of pastoralism in a changing climate
Pastoralism is a free-range livestock production system. It is practised in all of Africa’s dryland regions, and in some communities it is the main source of food security and income.
The future of pastoralism in the changing climate is the subject of national and global discussions. The concerns are catalysing the scientific community to generate knowledge and share experiences and best practices that may offer solutions for the survival of pastoralism and the millions of people dependant on this livelihood.
This issue of Joto Afrika provides case studies of local knowledge in action across Africa, and success stories from research to showcase various ways of climate adaptation by pastoralists . It also provides key messages and recommendation to key stakeholders.
