Tufts/ FIC are pleased to announce the publication of a two part review of emergency livestock interventions in Sudan. Livestock production is a crucial livelihood strategy for farmers and pastoralists throughout Sudan, and contributes to a wider economy linked with livestock marketing, livestock products, fodder and water. In Sudan there is a long experience of livestock interventions that predates the development of the international “Livestock Emergency Guidelines and Standards”, including for example provision of veterinary services (vaccination, training of Community Animal Health Workers), animal fodder, restocking and destocking livestock, etc. Given this wide-ranging history and experience this study was interested to review the current state of emergency livestock projects and how LEGS had made a difference.
