Description : Nomadic stockbreeders' way of life is under threat in the Sahel region. Why ?
1. Climate change. Rising temperatures and erratic rainfall are reducing grazing land. In Niger alone, more than 100,000 hectares are lost every year.
2. Armed violence. Armed groups, gangs and tensions between communities are making migration routes more and more dangerous. Stockbreeders fear moving around with their herds, so instead they're stayong put.
3. Illnesses. Now that moving around is difficult, there's not enough space, and sick and healthy animals are beoing kept together. Illnesses are spreading, herds are dying and stockbreeders are losing their livelihoods.
Since early 2019, the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) has vaccinated over 9 million animals accross the Sahel region, including cattle, sheep, goats and camels.
