Advocacy group of European organisations and specialists partnering with pastoralist organisations and specialists in Eastern Africa. The members and partners of the Coalition combine forces to lobby their national governments and European and Eastern African bodies to explicitly recognise and support pastoralism and pastoralists in the drylands of Eastern Africa. Pastoralists are family farmers who practise low-external-input agroecology in dryland areas to produce food and other products.
