Visiting Fellow Hussein Sulieman presents a Feinstein livestock study in Sudan

Feinstein Visiting Fellow, Hussein Sulieman (right), presented research from our Building Resilience and Adaptation to Climate Extremes and Disasters (BRACED) program at the 2nd Symposium on Climate Change Adaptation in Africa at the University of Ibadan in Ibadan, Nigeria in May 2018.

Hussein described a recent study about the mobility of livestock herds in West Darfur, Sudan. He discussed the shift in herd composition from cattle and camel to sheep as mechanism to adapt to climate change and insecurity, and the implications of reducing the frequently of watering of livestock on animal health during dry season due to lack of water sources.

The participants represented 13 countries (Sudan, Niger, Ethiopia, Kenya, Tanzania, Rwanda, Zambia, South Africa, Cameroon, Benin, Ghana, Senegal and the United Kingdom).
