Pastoral Livelihoods in Ethiopia
Drylands, particularly in Africa, are once more taking centre stage in numerous policy debates. The United Nations has declared 2006 the International Year of Deserts and Desertification, focusing attention on the importance of drylands to the international environmental agenda. But who drives this agenda and for what purpose?
The bulletin has a new look, it has been restructured so that there are now six sections in addition to the EDITORIAL. A short NEWS section highlighting key events, three central sections, PEOPLE, POLICIES and PROGRAMMES, which constitute the heart of the bulletin where a broad range of subjects of direct relevance to drylands areas are covered in more depth. The RESOURCES section, where you'll find book reviews and information on a range of other materials or events and the BACK PAGE, introducing each of the accompanying Issue Papers.
