Hann Bel-Air (Dakar), May 6 (APS) – The work of the scientific council of the Pastoralism and Dry Zones Pole (PPZS) opened Monday morning, in the premises of the Senegalese Institute of Agricultural Research (ISRA), in Hann Bel-Air in Dakar, in the presence of academics, experts, students, researchers and various other stakeholders.

”This council will be a forum for exchanges between research and development stakeholders (…) I would like to assure you of the support of the ministry. , declared the Minister of the Environment and Ecological Transition, Daouda Ngom.

He chaired the opening of the work of this scientific council which is held over three days, at the National Laboratory of Livestock and Veterinary Research (LNERV) of the ISRA-Pôle de Recherche de Hann in Dakar.

The meeting is devoted to the results of scientific activities. Participants will also comment on the development and research results of the PPZS.

”The PPZS Scientific Council is a moment of reflection and sharing of unparalleled scientific scope on pastoral breeding. It contributes to the influence of science, of the partnership of the national and international institutions which constitute it,” indicated Momar Talla Seck, the director general of ISRA.

He further said that “climate change continues to exacerbate droughts and water shortages, jeopardizing the very livelihoods of pastoral communities.”

According to him, land conflicts and inter-community tensions “often hinder” development efforts, “undermining social cohesion and compromising regional peace”.

”This is why it is essential that we redouble our efforts and continue our collaboration in order to meet these challenges with determination and resilience,” he urged.

”By joining forces and sharing our knowledge and experiences, we can pave the way for a more prosperous, equitable and sustainable future for pastoralists and dryland dwellers in West Africa,” added Momar Talla Seck.

The PPZS is a consortium bringing together multidisciplinary skills from institutions such as CIRAD, ISRA, UCAD and CSE. Its objective is to promote scientific partnership and the development of territories and societies through research and the transfer of knowledge on the functions, functioning and functionalities of pastoral livestock farming.
