Dr Otieno Mtula, IGAD LPI Livestock Policy Adviser, speaking at the Sudan Policy Hub Meeting in Khartoum

The Sudanese Policy Hub meeting on the 8th – 9th November 2010, discussed ways of institutionalising their Policy Hub and Information Node, established through IGAD LPI, into the Ministry of Animal Resources and Fisheries (MARF). The policy hub further discussed ways of ensuring sustainable funding to maintain momentum beyond the life of IGAD LPI, and continue addressing challenges the livestock keepers face in sustaining their livelihoods. The Policy Hub formed a special committee to meet senior MARF officials and the Head of the Agriculture Committee in the National Assembly and advocate the recommendations coming out of the meeting. They will convey the message that Sudan needs more emphasis on pro-poor policy making for the benefit of the livestock dependent poor.
