The PROCASUR Corporation in Africa in collaboration with the International Fund for Agricultural Development (IFAD) have partnered with the International Land Coalition, International Livestock Research Institute (ILRI), the Land Portal Foundation and Resource Conflict Institute (RECONCILE) to present the Learning Initiative: Innovative practices and tools to reduce land use conflicts between farmers and livestock keepers, taking place in Kenya and Tanzania, between the 22nd September and 1st October 2017 under the framework of the PROCASUR-IFAD Programme “Strengthening Capacities and tools to scale up and disseminate Innovations.
Through a face-to-face learning, the 10-day Learning Route includes the opportunity of learning directly in the field and from its protagonists some of the best practices, innovative tools and approaches implemented in favour of land use conflict resolution among farmers and livestock users. Participants are drawn from IFAD, government partners and CSOs working in pastoral areas of Nigeria.
The Main objective of this cross-regional learning initiative is to contribute to lesson-sharing and learning at country and regional level in order to build technical capacities within IFAD´s operations and main partners in the Africa region on innovative strategies of securing land rights and how to manage land conflicts between farmers and pastoralists.
Daily accounts of the Learning Route will be posted here on the Land Portal website including the summary of the experiences and places visited, and feedback from the participants and resources persons they meet along the way. Please join us each day to follow their progress.
