Academic workshop: Mobile Pastoralism, Index Insurance, Computational Sustainability and Policy Innovations for the Arid and Semi-arid Lands of East Africa

This workshop was held on June 10 and 11 2015 , at the John Vercoe (JVC) Auditorium International Livestock Research Institute (ILRI) Nairobi, Kenya

The Academic Workshop provided a forum to showcase the research work that is ongoing in and around IBLI on behavior and welfare and drivers of change that affect the pastoral community in the Arid and the Semi Arid Lands. The two day event featured talks from renowned scholars and academicians from across the world on issues that concern the pastoral community. There will be discussions on micro-insurance as a social protection tool, whether IBLI has impact on increasing resilience, market engagements or if it is competing against expectations.
