Water and fodder availability along livestock trade routes in the Horn of Africa This is the final report of the baseline and good practices study on water and fodder availability along the livestock trade routes in the Horn of Africa. This regional study aims to consolidate findings from previous activities by FAO and other stakeholders, and identify good practices, existing infrastructure and the most appropriate areas for future interventions in rangeland productivity and water availability along the livestock routes used for export. This study identified the main livestock routes, appropriate sites for rehabilitation and development of strategic livestock water sources and sites for adaptation of good practices on fodder production and commercialization units as well as rehabilitation of natural rangelands.
