Présentation
Climate change is affecting pastoral communities in a way that they are forced to destroy environment as well as range lands degradation. Pastoralists are forced to enter into the forest reserves during dry seasons to search for pasture and water. This tendency has negatively affected the environment and conservation initiatives. This project is therefore aiming at supporting livestock production by improving livestock health through production of forage and livestock (cattle) fattening practices in Longido District.
