Tufts University Feinstein International Centre publications

Tufts University Feinstein International Centre has published 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, water and support services. In Sudan there is a long experience of livestock interventions. This study reviewed recent emergency livestock interventions and the introduction of the Livestock Emergency Guidelines and Standards to Sudan.
