IGAD LPI WP 01_11_Livestock & Livelihoods in the IGAD Region_A Policy and Institutional Analysis_AD

This paper reviews major livestock-related policies and institutions in the IGAD region to understand if and how they are supportive of households livelihoods. In particular, the paper addresses two questions:
• What livestock sector policies and programmes are currently in place and what are the dominant development narratives that drive these policies and programmes?
• What are the expected and actual intended or unintended impacts on households’ livelihoods of the prevailing dominant narratives driving the livestock sector policies and programmes?
