CRP1.1. North Africa and West AsiaSites Characteristics
Reducing Vulnerability and Managing Risk
Regional Inception Workshop
Rabat, Morocco July 2-4, 2012
E-W & S-N gradient
(CV:38 to 59 %)
Breeds: Barabarine sheep/60 %, Local Goat/30 % local, Camel/10 %
Feeding system: Rangeland: 20%, purchased feed: 40 %, 40 % cactus, olive cake and straw
Crop/livestock integration: High through the use of horticulture and barley crops residues
2 US$ per person per day (Methodology of Ministry of Social Affairs Ministry)
• Sidi Bouzid:42.3%
• Gafsa: 30.9%
• Gabes: 28.9%
For both sites, 2 major production systems:
The use of innovation platform (IP) in community-based organization of rangeland involving agro-pastoral stakeholders will help halt land degradation and restore ecosystems and improve livelihoods
Rangeland production systems can be made less risky and more resilient by integrated technical, institutional and policy innovations that aim at rangeland rehabilitation and sustainable management
Barley-sheep system productivity and resilience can be enhanced through integrated improvements in policy, institutional set-up and technologies (feed, health, adapted breeds), and markets (capital, input and product).
Integrating appropriate water harvesting as well as soil and water conservation practices will improve livestock productivity and reduce risks and vulnerability of agro-pastoral communities
System analysis including bioeconomic modeling and market analysis will facilitate policy and institutional changes and the outscaling of innovations
Equitable distribution of benefits and responsibilities through integration of youth and women will enhance economic development of the target areas
