    During the past 70 years, concerted efforts by the national veterinary services of affected countries from Senegal to China and Russia to South Africa—aided by international organizations—have brought the once-dreaded rinderpest virus to the point of extinction. In the near future, we can expect to see a global declaration of freedom from rinderpest, the first time this has been achieved for a livestock disease. The devastation wrought by rinderpest stimulated the founding of veterinary schools in many countries, and provided the basis for the development of the veterinary profession.

    The purpose of this report is first to provide evidence of the role of livestock in rural livelihoods in Sub-Saharan Africa and South Asia. Further, the report aims to identify opportunities for investments that build on that evidence and hold promise for improving and sustaining the livelihoods of smallholder livestock producers and their rural communities in developing countries. This analysis is presented in order to support the decision making of those public and private development investors, and policy makers, for whom improved rural livelihoods is a key objective.

    The Nile basin experiences wide spread poverty, lack of food and land and water

    degradation. Because poverty is linked to access to water for crop, fish and

    livestock based livelihoods, improving access to water and increasing agricultural

    water productivity can potentially contribute substantially to poverty reduction.

    The major goal of the Nile Basin Focal project is to identify high potential

    investments that reduce poverty yet reverse trends in land and water

    degradation. This is done through the implementation of six interlinked work

    challenges posed by the CPWF, to the Nile Basin Initiative’s goal of better sharing benefits of water

    use, and to global need for the livestock sector to use agricultural water more efficiently and
