Business case of resilience-enhancing technologies and good practices on fodder and fodder seed production in Karamoja Cluster

06/02/2020

The Intergovernmental Authority on Development (IGAD) region landmass is about 60-70 percent Arid and Semiarid Lands (ASALs) characterised by low, erratic rainfall. The pastoralists and agropastoralists who inhabit these ASALs mainly depend on livestock keeping for their livelihood. However, livestock keeping is constrained by the effects of climate change that has contributed to increased frequency of drought and flood occurrence since the beginning of the 21st century.

The fact sheet outlines some resilience-enhancing technologies and investment opportunities based on multiple-benefits, scalability, ease of implementation, profitability, cultural sensitivity, susceptibility to climate change and stability/land tenure in the Karamoja Cluster (Karamoja region in Uganda, Turkana and West Pokot counties in Kenya, and South Omo in Ethiopia). They are a result of an assessment undertaken in October-November, 2019.
