Abstract

Pastoral development has been a field of fierce confrontation and experimentation throughout the last fifty years. The 12-years experience of an integrated project carried out by an international NGO in Southern Ethiopia is presented, focusing on two inter-related aspects: animal health and natural resources management. The peculiar aspects of the area are described, considering the traditional management systems and their integration in the modern context. Based on some specific project activities (modern water schemes development, community-based animal health program, vaccination campaigns) outcomes and problem raised are discussed, coming out with some general considerations.
