Supporting Pastoralism and Agriculture
in Recurrent and Protracted Crises

With 196 million people, Nigeria is Africa’s most populous country. Around 10 per cent of its people are between 15 and 19. Agriculture is a foundation of the country’s economy, contributing to about 21 per cent of GDP, and with just over one-third of working people in the country employed in agriculture. Livestock production, largely managed by pastoral communities in Nigeria’s semi-arid areas, is an important part of Nigeria’s economy, with around 13 million families owning livestock.
