Livestock, risks and wellbeing

pastoralists and agro-pastoralists in Africa

What’s on offer?

Join us for a 2-hour hybrid session with 3-4 presentations to introduce research and other work in different agro-pastoralist and pastoralist communities in Africa, followed by audience participation and discussion with experts on emerging topics like how to mitigate risks to health (animal and human) or the possible role of (and obstacles to) education., 

What’s it about?

Livestock is critical for resource generation for many, often marginalised, communities in Africa. These communities are exposed to severe risks and have very few mitigation options; thus, risks are central to well-being. The United Nations has declared 2026 as the International Year of Rangelands and Pastoralists and we aim to raise awareness in preparation for this.
