This was a follow up study to earlier regional analysis for the IGAD-FAO Livestock Policy Initiative that examined the benefits of livestock exports by pastoralist wealth group. Mind the Gap focuses on the Borana and Somali areas of Ethiopia, and describes the growing formal trade in meat and animals from pastoralist areas, destined for export markets. The report discusses how this commercialization trend is affecting poorer pastoralist households, and revisits the logic of safety net and asset-building programs for these households. The study was funded by the Department for International Development (UK) in Ethiopia.
