Policy Brief: Social protection in pastoral areas: promoting inclusive growth at the margins

Policy Brief: Social protection in pastoral areas: promoting inclusive growth at the margins
  • Partagez :

Thèmes :

Vulnerability and poverty levels remain
stubbornly high and arguably are deepening in
many pastoral areas of the Horn of Africa. This
is in spite of galloping livestock commercialisation
in these areas and their closer incorporation into
wider systems of marketing, trade and
investment. The fact remains that the benefits
of recent growth and investment in pastoral
areas have yet to result in wider benefits for
addressing food insecurity and poor nutrition.
Chronically food insecure, poor or vulnerable
people with limited assets cannot engage in or
contribute to more productive livestockkeeping
or other growth-oriented economic
activities that are the intended focus of the New
Alliance. Thus, strengthening social protection
systems in the region is a prerequisite for
realising more inclusive growth at the pastoral
margins. This brief details the role of social
protection in agendas to promote agricultural
growth, highlighting areas of innovative
programme design and implementation where
further efforts might focus.
