KORE - Knowledge Sharing Platform on Resilience

Business case of resilience-enhancing technologies and practices along the livestock value chain in IGAD Cluster 1 (Karamoja)


Livestock is one of the major renewable resource endowments of the IGAD Member States (Djibouti, Eritrea, Ethiopia, Kenya, Somalia, South Sudan, Sudan and Uganda). The region has one of the highest ruminant livestock concentrations in Africa and in the world. Its percent share from Africa is about 44.5% of the cattle, 38.6% of small ruminants and 71.4% of the camel population. The predominant livestock in Karamoja cluster in the order of preference in the livestock value chain are cattle, sheep, goats and camels.

This fact sheet outlines findings on resilience-enhancing innovative technologies and good practices related to the livestock value chain. It is based on an assessment that was undertaken in 2019 in the Karamoja Cluster (Karamoja region in Uganda, Turkana and West Pokot counties in Kenya and from secondary data about South Omo in Ethiopia).
