Abstract: "East Africa harbours a huge hidden asset: its millions-strong herds of dryland livestock managed by pastoralists. Governments in the region see pastoralism as archaic and economically inefficient. This briefing reveals a very different picture. Capturing pastoralism's total economic value shows its immense potential to reduce poverty, manage the environment, promote sustainable development and build climate resilience."
