Issa pastoralists in Ethiopia: changing livelihoods & conflict

A rapid analysis of Issa pastoralist livelihoods and conflict in the Somali region on Ethiopia was commissioned by Mercy Corps and carried out by the Feinstein International Center of Tufts University. The 96-page report Moving up or moving out? A rapid livelihoods and conflict analysis in Mieso-Mulu Woreda, Shinile Zone, Somali Region, Ethiopia (2010) recommends policy and legal support to pastoralist communal land use and protecting pastoral areas from landgrabbing, support to formal education to allow economic diversification especially for people moving out of pastoralism, reduction of barriers to women and girls accessing education and health services, and supporting livelihoods-based responses to drought such as commercial destocking, targeted feed supplementation and veterinary voucher schemes
