Resilience and pastoralism in Africa

In the IFPRI book Resilience for food and nutrition security (2014), the chapter on Resilience and pastoralism in Africa south of the Sahara (8pp) by Peter Little and John McPeak takes a closer look at the concept of resilience and its application in the specific context of pastoral production systems. It gives an overview of the realities of today’s pastoralism in sub-Saharan Africa and highlights the social, economic, and political challenges and opportunities. The primary focus is on pastoral systems in the Horn of Africa, with some comparisons with systems in the West African Sahel.
