Adama Traoré, Executive Secretary, Association for the promotion of livestock in the Sahel and the Savannah (APESS)

“We call upon the States to set up emergency funds to boost the livestock sector and provide equipment for vulnerable livestock farmers; help rebuild their herds and resume livestock breeding. These emergency funds would also support internally displaced farmers due to insecurity.”
