The World Bank (WB), the Food and Agricultural Organization of the United Nations (FAO) and the European Union (EU) wished to support the development of a Somali livestock strategy that would be expected to contribute to the provision of a means to develop the economic, social and environmental potentials of Somalia and ultimately improve the livelihoods of both rural and urban populations. Consultants worked on a strategy in the second half of 2003 during which they visited four areas of Somalia and countries that import livestock and livestock products from Somalia.

Principal among the stakeholders that were met, whose opinions were taken and whose inputs are to be found throughout this report, were those at all levels in both the public and private sectors in the Somali ecosystem. The Consultants and their Somali counterparts organized and participated in four regional workshops in Somalia and organized a major Consultative Stakeholder Workshop in Nairobi.

Participants at the regional Workshops were livestock sector stakeholders at all levels from primary producers to top administrative officials and civil servants. The conclusions and recommendations of these workshops with respect to strategic approaches for livestock development formed the basis of the discussions at the Nairobi Workshop. Somali representatives at the Nairobi Workshop were chosen democratically to be regional delegates by the whole of the participants at the regional Workshops.

Other stakeholders at the Nairobi Workshop were from the donor community, the United Nations and its Specialized Agencies, African Union–InterAfrican Bureau for Animal Resources and staff of a number of NGOs with special experience of and interests in the Somali livestock sector.
