Livestock mobility in Sudan is important for both seasonal transhumance and access to markets. This paper concentrates on the first of these, largely because it is the focus of most of the experiences and documents available for review. This bias perhaps reflects the growing attention being given to resource-based conflict in Sudan, within which mobility is an important factor.

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’. It summarises the general context affecting livestock mobility in Sudan but focuses in particular on Western Sudan (Kordofan and Darfur).
