DIRECTLY FROM THE FIELD: A CAMPAIGN TO AVOID CONFLICT BETWEEN SEDENTARY FARMERS AND AGRO-PASTORALISTS IN TOGO

VSF- Suisse, 03.04.2019

 

In West Africa, for many agro-pastoralists –so-called "transhumant" peoples—the season of migration has begun. Similar to Swiss farmers who in summer move their livestock to the alps to benefit from the lush mountain pastures, transhumant groups around the world follow a pattern of seasonal migration. They migrate to different grazing areas because their local pastures only provide sufficient food during a specific season.

 

However, the borders of these grazing areas are often not clearly defined and can even stretch across different countries. In recent years, cross-border migration of transhumant peoples in West Africa has repeatedly led to tensions between sedentary farmers and transhumant agro-pastoralists. The reason is that both groups lay claims to the same territory and natural resources, such as water and grazing land.  

 

In the region of the Abdoulaye forest in Togo, where VSF-Suisse has been working for years, transhumant migration has also constituted a problem in the past. As a result, conflicts between transhumant and sedentary farming groups arose. This year, VSF-Suisse has taken measures to facilitate a peaceful coexistence of all parties.

VACCINATE FOR AFRICA 2019

Nina Privitera, 01.04.2019

Swiss veterinarians support their colleagues in Africa: This year VSF-Suisse's traditional vaccination week will take place for the 14th time. During this vaccination week, which will take place from 13-18 May 2019, veterinary clinics throughout Switzerland collect the revenues they made through vaccinations, and donate to VSF-Suisse in order to support the valuable work of our team in and for Africa.
 

 

The donations from “Vaccinate for Africa 2019” will provide trainings for our staff and beneficiaries. In our line of work, it is essential to have qualified staff, and for this reason, the continuous training of our teams in the field is as important as the one of our beneficiaries.


 

To find out more, please visit the French or the German information pages about this campaign. Many thanks!
