(London- October 09 2007) A unique collaboration between a small British charity and the UNHCR in Chadwill create the first ever strategic plan for dealing with livestock in an emergency situation.

The British veterinary charity, SPANA, has just returned from a field trip to Eastern Chad. Earlier this year the UNHCR (United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees) in Chadasked SPANA to draw up a strategic plan to sustain and support livestock in the region, as competition for natural resources between the various human populations was resulting in livestock management problems.
