SPARC events bring together diverse decision-makers and community representatives to foster debate and share learning on ways to support agro-pastoralists, pastoralists and farmers in dryland areas to build resilience.
In January 2023, the SPARC Innovation Research Facility partnered with Wowzi to explore how pastoralists engage on social media in Kenya, Uganda, Tanzania and Nigeria and how this can be unlocked for information and product campaigns and generate new streams of income.
What are the key policy and funding challenges that need to be overcome to support climate resilience and food security in fragile and conflict-affected pastoralist regions? Find out how SPARC highlighted these obstacles, and ways to overcome them, at UNFCCC COP27.
SPARC researchers share the outcomes of an ongoing longitudinal research project looking at the impacts of Covid-19 on livelihoods and conflict dynamics in South Sudan, Somalia, and Nigeria, as well as at the answers to broader questions beyond the pandemic.
SPARC postdoctoral fellow Dr. Salau Daniel Rogei presented the outcomes of his research that focuses on understanding the past and present trends of cattle theft and conflicts among the pastoralist communities in Western Kenya and Eastern Uganda.
