[SOS Sahel UK & IIED, Editor Helen de Jode, 2009]
This is a book about the critical role mobile livestock keeping plays in the economic prosperity of Africa's drylands.  Across East and West Africa, an estimated 50 million livestock producers support their families, their communities, and a massive meat, skins and hides industry based on animals that are fed solely on natural dryland pastures.  Where other land use systems are failing in the face of global climate change, mobile livestock keeping, or pastoralism, is generating huge national and regional economic benefits.  (88 pp) ISBN No 978-1-84369-752-7.
