Efforts to ensure sustainable peace can help to support access to safe, reliable and affordable energy in the long term. Energy access in turn can help to reduce conflict due to specific food security and livelihood benefits, such as the ability to safely cook food and carry out income-generating activities. An in-depth analysis of context-specific conflict drivers is a necessary first step in working towards sustainable peace.

Depuis 2013, l’insurrection de Boko Haram et sa répression ont entraîné des bouleversements majeurs dans la région du lac Tchad. Les pasteurs et leurs troupeaux, en particulier, ne peuvent plus circuler librement et n’ont plus accès à certains parcours. Hier au cœur d’une économie informelle et d’une intégration régionale « par le bas » très dynamique, l’élevage pastoral connaît actuellement une crise inédite dans la région. Quelles en sont les caractéristiques ? Comment penser son développement dans un tel contexte?

The objectives of the workshop were to (i) share and exchange experiences and lessons on available methods and tools to identify and analyse trade-offs in agricultural systems (at different levels: from household to landscape, regional and global level), (ii) to discuss and explore how we can apply the lessons learned within and between the respective CRPs, (iii) to explore potential for synergies and collaboration between scientists and programs on trade-off analysis in agricultural systems, (iv) to discuss how results from trade-off analysis research can be translated to end-users to achi

Climate-induced livelihood transitions in the agricultural systems of Africa are increasingly likely. There is limited evidence on what such transitions might look like. We carried out fieldwork in 12 sites in Kenya, Tanzania and Uganda to understand changes in farming systems in the recent past, and to test the hypothesis that sedentary farmers in zones that may become warmer and drier in the future may be forced to increase their reliance on livestock vis-à-vis cropping in the future. We estimated the contribution of crop and livestock activities to incomes, food security and poverty.

Sustainable development of pastoral and agro-pastoral systems, dominated by collective and/or tribal ownership of rangelands, is a key issue for the West Asia and North Africa region. These two systems are located in arid and semi-arid areas and are increasingly threatened by desertification process. The policy responses to tackle this complexity have been a sectorial and fragmented, “top-down” approach, putting forward technical solutions and neglecting the social context.

Background: ‘Climate-smart agriculture’ (CSA)—agriculture and food systems that
sustainably increase food production, improve resilience (or adaptive capacity) of farming
systems, and mitigate climate change when possible—has quickly been integrated into the
global development agenda. However, the empirical evidence base for CSA has not been
assembled, complicating the transition from CSA concept to concrete actions, and
contributing to ideological disagreement among development practitioners. Thus, there is an

A number of studies have suggested that addressing greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from agricultural
production, or ‘supply-side emissions’, will be insufficient to reduce agri-food sector GHG emissions to limit
the increase of global temperatures to well below 2o
C. Recent studies have also suggested that ‘demandside
measures’ related to food consumption, food value chains, and food loss and waste, will be necessary
to reduce emissions and may have a larger technical mitigation potential than supply-side measures.

It is widely acknowledged that goats in developing countries fulfill multiple functions and can contribute to improved livelihoods of smallholders. The multi-functionality of goats in rural Mozambique however is fairly unknown. The objective of the paper is therefore to identify and create a deeper understanding of the multiple functions goats currently play in the smallholders sector in Mozambique. The paper takes a sociological approach by advancing the thinking that the functions of goats are socially and culturally constructed, and not ‘given’.
