Restocking Pastoralists View Jacket

  • Synopsis
    Restocking can be an effective means of poverty alleviation, which enables poor households to be incorporated back into the social and economic fabric of pastoralism. Nevertheless, at present the sustainability of projects is low. This book responds to the previous failures of restocking projects by promoting a new client-driven approach. As such, it offers a holistic overview of the factors influencing the success of restocking as a means of relief, rehabilitation or development. A review of best practices in project design and implementation is also described. Equally, easily applied decision support tools have been created to assist practitioners in each stage of the restocking cycle ranging from community and client selection to monitoring and evaluation. As well as its practical application, the book provides a comprehensive background to key concepts and literature. Use of the manual will enable practitioners and policy makers to improve the poverty alleviation outcomes of restocking projects and programmes. Claire Heffernan is a Senior Research Fellow at the University of Reading and the Director of the Livestock Development Group; Louise Nielsen is a member of the Livestock Development Group; Federica Misturelli is a linguist with a background in social development.
