Geographical focus

The project aim was to reduce vulnerability and poverty in both pastoral and agro-pastoral areas in the regions Lac, Kanem, Barl El Gazal, Batha Ouest, Batha Est, Guera, Baguirmi, Dababa and Hadjer Lamis. It aimed to improve the access of mobile livestock systems to water and pastoral resources through improved infrastructure and to strengthen the capacity of the groups and institutions involved in planning and managing these natural resources. The targeted beneficiaries were included in 32,000 households.

With regard to land and natural resource governance, the project supported the mapping of existing wells and of livestock migration routes to secure the mobility of farmers and facilitated the settlement of conflicts related to livestock wandering in the fields.
