Description In the Northern parts of West Africa cattle are the most important livestock for most pastoral communities. Because livestock is excluded from crop areas during the rainy season, the mobility of a large number of people and livestock is critical for the maintenance of the pastoral system. However, because of open access to grazing lands, mobile grazing is not sustainable and reductions in biodiversity have already been noted.
