OCHA Pastoralists Voices, Volume 1, Issue 8 - Oct 2008


For a Policy Framework on Pastoralism in Africa

African Union and the United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs

Pastoralists across Africa have called for a continent-wide policy framework that will begin to secure and protect the lives, livelihood and rights of pastoralists across Africa. The African Union has responded to this call and has begun formulating a Pastoral Policy Framework for the Continent.

Pastoralist Voices is a monthly bulletin that supports this process by promoting the voices and perspectives of pastoralists, and facilitating information flow between the major stakeholders in the policy process including pastoralists, the African Union, Regional Economic Communities and international agencies.
