Now in Portuguese: Accounting for pastoralists in Mozambique

The information brief Accounting for Pastoralists in Mozambique by Jacob Wanyama and Romuald Rutazihana is now available in Portuguese.

Agropastoralism is the major form of livestock management in Mozambique. Despite this, it is neglected by the government and development agencies alike. A key problem is a lack of reliable data. Without adequate information, it is impossible to design policies or interventions to address the problems that agropastoralists face.

O resumo informativo Valorizando pastoralistas em Moçambique por Jacob Wanyama e Romuald Rutazihana está agora disponível em português.

O agropastorilismo é a principal forma de gestão pecuária em Moçambique. Apesar disso, é negligenciado tanto pelo governo quanto pelas agências de fomento. Um problema chave é a falta de dados confiáveis. Sem informação adequada, é impossível desenhar políticas ou intervenções para enfrentar os problemas que os agropastoris enfrentam.
