Protecting Livelihood Assets in Blue Nile
FAO in partnership with USAID and the Ministry of Animal Resources and Fisheries in Blue Nile has completed a vaccination and treatment campaign of livestock in Demazine, Rosaires and Tadamon. Community Animal Health Workers carried out the vaccinations. Some of the livestock show poor body condition because they’ve been unable to continue their traditional migration south, across the new international border, to reach richer pastures. Many of the animals are concentrated in small pockets, thereby increasing overgrazing and the risk of animal diseases spreading.
