We cordially invite you to join us for a panel discussion on “The Impact of Climate change on Pastoralism in Somalia and Ethiopia”.
Pastoralists are severely impacted by the droughts and climate change from the past years. Thus, water for irrigation becomes scarce and the pressure on the local food production increases even further. Pastoralists settle down and give up their lifestyle or have to deal with increased tensions and conflicts over water. Meanwhile, pastoralist farming could be the climate friendly way of food for the future. Not only is pastoralist farming using climate friendly, it can even increase the biodiversity of the farmed soil.
Should pastoralism be further supported even though the tensions over water are increasing? If so, how would the future pastoralism look like in times of climate change?
Let’s talk about it.
Registration will open soon!
