This is one of a series of desk reviews produced as part of the project ‘Securing Pastoralism in East and West Africa: Protecting and Promoting Livestock Mobility’. Its focus is livestock mobility amongst the herding groups of the Karamojong cluster (in an area comprising northeast Uganda, northwest Kenya, southwest Ethiopia and southern Sudan).

The methodology involved a review of the literature, supplemented with brief interviews with key informants as well as small country studies in Kenya (Shadrack Omondi) and Uganda (Michael Wantsusi).

The desk review focused on two issues:~1. The context affecting livestock mobility.~2. The work of key development and research actors involved in promoting livestock mobility.
