Pastoralist networks and support organisations publish policy brief at the launch of the SLA

The third multi-stakeholder platform for a sustainable livestock agenda (SLA) will meet in Nairobi from 22-24th January. Together with several other networks and organisations that support pastoralism and sustainable livestock development, including IIED, LIFE Network, WAMIP (World Association of Mobile Indigenous People), ELD, Rainfed Livestock Network and CELEP, LPP brought out a policy brief entitled “Capitalizing on pastoralism to feed people and achieve livestock sector sustainability”. It suggests  supporting pastoralism (eco-extensification”) as an alternative model to the mainstream concept of “sustainable intensification” to improving livestock sector sustainability.
