Présentation

Climate change poses a serious threat to food security of millions of pastoral families engaged in extensive livestock production systems in the arid and semi-arid lands in Africa. The primary concern is how to mitigate the extreme impact of climate oscillations on these communities and other vulnerable groups, whose livelihoods depend almost entirely on climate-sensitive resources. One approach towards combating the hydra-headed challenges of climate change is to adopt a multi-stakeholder involvement in knowledge sharing and exchange by all those involved, and/or affected by climate change impacts.
