Simple solutions to complex problems

May 9th, 2012

Conflicts between moving populations with livestock and settled farmers groups are common in many parts of the world.

Practical Action Sudan has developed and tested an approach to mark the pastoralist routes more clearly and have negotiated this with the farmers around the routes.

This involved complex negotiations but led to something simple, which works. The routes are marked with colored poles and provides a visible mark for all the parties involved. This approach has great potential to reduce conflicts.
