Dodo: public measures to fight the COVID-19 pandemic are not adopted to pastoral realities

Boureima Dodo, Permanent Secretary, Réseau Bilital Maroobé (RBM)

“Public authorities and development partners must urgently mobilise to support pastoral communities, particularly during the lean season which is set to start earlier. However, the COVID-19 pandemic also brings new opportunities; for example, pastoral systems can be a source of inspiration challenging sedentary lifestyle. The current situation also shows that distance learning is working.”
