CORET, APESS, ROPPA and RBM brought a Common View on the issue that was discussed at the Ministerial meeting on Transhumance and Security in the region held from 24 to 27 April 2018 in Abuja, Nigeria. As a matter of fact, in fine, the only victims of these conflicts are the farmers and breeders who are members of our various PO networks (deaths of pastoralists and farmers, loss of livestock and harvest, time spent on administrative and judicial procedures for conflict resolution, etc., at the expense of time spent on production activities).

It is this shared vision on the issue of transhumance that prompted these networks to come together to propose to the ministerial meeting a diagnosis of the transhumance situation (causes and consequences) as well as proposals for solutions towards facing the issue.
