The European Alliance on Agricultural knowledge for Development
9 November 2017. Brussels. This Infopoint Lunch conference was

organised at DG DevCo Pastoralism and conflict resolution in Eastern Africa

Land issues, climate change related droughts and floods are some of the causes of conflicts in pastoralist areas in Eastern Africa. 
Trying to better understand these underlying causes and seeing pastoralists as part of the solution instead of the problem is key for conflict resolution and sustainable development.
