Towards a strategy for cross-border transhumance

Livestock ministers and experts from Benin, Burkina Faso, Niger and Togo, civil society representatives, and technical and financial partners took part in a dialogue to develop a mechanism for peaceful cross-border transhumance that addresses the concerns of Sahelian and costal countries. Held from 29-30 January in Lomé, the high-level consultation focused on ways to achieve peaceful and productive cross-border transhumance in the region. An investment programme for costal countries would complement the Regional Support Programme for Pastoralism in the Sahel (PRAPS), which is currently being implemented by CILSS with the support of the World Bank.
