The need to increase water productivity is a growing global concern as the World Commission on Water has estimated that demand for water will increase by c. 50% over the next 30 years and approximately half of the world's population will experience conditions of severe water stress by 2025. Three-quarters of African countries are expected to experience unstable water supplies, whereby small decreases in rainfall induce much larger reductions in streamflow.

Rapidly changing food systems are creating both challenges and opportunities. As urban food markets have grown in recent decades, so too have rural–urban food supply chains. The growing urban demand has the potential to be a major force towards poverty reduction and inclusive rural development. This increasing urban demand for food, and especially for higher-value processed food, is creating opportunities for producers and agribusiness, including input suppliers.

This report examines how pastoral mobility has been impacted by the creation of unnatural boundaries within their landscapes and how societies cope with these constraints through legal or informal arrangements.
