Assisting African livestock keepers

Book/book chapter

This paper highlights the importance of involving livestock-keepers on the management of the services and improved resources provided by development programmes, and the importance of listening to herders during the implementation stage, in order to adapt the project to their needs.

The findings gathered during a formative evaluation of producer reactions to on-farm trials conducted by the SubHumid Zone Program of the International Livestock Centre for Africa show how monitoring Fulani behaviour during their use of the technology signalled ways to improve the forage production and utilisation recommendations.
