Emergency Support to improve resilience of pastoralists affected by recurrent drought (Project HRF NOGOB JARAR)





Animal health support is a core livelihood-based intervention in pastoral areas considering the huge production losses caused by widespread livestock mortality throughout the year and especially during drought events. Animal health interventions bring immediate and substantial benefits to pastoralists by preserving their main livelihood asset, which is their livestock.
