Pastoralism in Practice: Monitoring livestock mobility in contemporary Sudan

This policy briefing paper presents the main findings of a research study carried out by the Feinstein International Center at Tufts University and partners, which set out to understand the resilience of livestock production systems that depend on strategic livestock mobility. The purpose of this policy briefing paper is to flag key issues, based on the results of recent research, for consideration by government, humanitarian and development practitioners, research institutions, and other actors with a role in policy and decision-making in Sudan. The motivation for the study on which this briefing paper is based was the lack of evidence regarding pastoralism and livestock production in a national context where livestock are increasingly in the spotlight, given their economic importance post-secession.

The paper was originally published by the Feinstein International Center at Tufts University.
