Livestock Trade in the Horn of Africa
Nisar Majid, Author, Livestock Trade in the Djibouti, Somali and Ethiopian Borderlands
Hussein A Mahmoud, Author, Livestock Trade in the Kenyan, Somali and Ethiopian Borderlands
Chair: Sally Healy, Associate Fellow, Africa Programme, Chatham House
This event will provide an opportunity to discuss the findings of two reports published as part of the Africa Programme's project on The Economics of Conflict and Cooperation in the Horn of Africa, which investigates how the economic structure of the Horn contributes to conflict or collaboration between states in the region.
Nisar Majid's paper, Livestock Trade in the Djibouti, Somali and Ethiopian Borderlands, explores the livestock trade in the northern Horn of Africa. It illustrates the interconnectedness of the region and the potential that exists for enhanced regional economic cooperation and development to mitigate cross-border tensions.
Livestock Trade in the Kenyan, Somali and Ethiopian Borderlands examines the responses of traders to fast-changing political dynamics in the southern Horn of Africa and illustrates the strength of regional economic linkages between Somalia, Kenya and Ethiopia.
