Description:

Another ongoing and severe drought in East Africa has reopened debates on the viability of pastoralism, alternative livelihoods, and ways to support resilience. The Feinstein International Center has been studying these issues for more than 20 years and has documented changes over time in a forthcoming report.

Join researchers from Feinstein, Emory University, and the Institute for Development Studies for a preview of this report and a conversation about what makes pastoralists resilient in Eastern Africa. The panelists will discuss:
• How commercialization has driven a gradual redistribution of livestock from poorer to wealthier households
• How access to markets and productive rangeland determine different pathways to resilience
• How population and urban growth affect pastoralist livelihoods
• Challenges to supporting diversified and alternative livelihoods for increasing numbers of people within and outside of pastoralist areas
