Strengthening resilience of 905,000 pastoralists and agro-pastoralists in Mauritiania, Senegal, Mali, Burkina Faso and Niger
The Acting for Life (AFL) Consortium has been awarded the project: "Strengthening resilience of 905,000 pastoralists and agro-pastoralists, by securing, servicing and promoting trans-border livestock mobility across Mauritania, Senegal, Mali, Burkina Faso and Niger" funded by DFID (Department For International Development) as a component of the programme Building Resilience and Adaptation to Climate Extremes and Disasters (BRACED).
As part of the implementation of the project, Acting for Life has requested NCG to provide long-term technical and methodological support (backstopping) in the implementation of the project. NCG has been part of the conceptual analysis leading to the formulation of the final AFL-consortium proposal for BRACED (January - July 2014) and is now part of the implementation phase, providing back-stopping for monitoring and evaluating resilience among beneficiaries, and for producing a key component of the AFL/BRACED project: the development of lobbying tools for trans-border livestock mobility in West Africa.
The assistance of experts from NCG includes both home-based assistance and field missions, conducting research, and participating in institutional meetings with BRACED Fund Management and Knowledge Management in Europe and Africa. The assignment will be undertaken between 1st January 2015 and 30th March 2018.
