This study is an assessment of the impacts of the Pastoral Community Harmonization Initiative (PCHI) in its fourth year. The resulting review gives PCHI high marks for its work on both the animal health and the conflict resolution fronts, and in developing synergies among them. It also flags several weaknesses needed attention. It notes that, with effective PCHI activities taking place in the field and excellent collaborative arrangements in place in Nairobi and elsewhere, the stage is set for a significant scaling up of the current PCHI work. The author offers a wider variety of options for taking the activities to the next level.
