Niger: the Houroum in Malley

First published on 08/05/2013, and last updated on 05/17/2017

Niger is a country of pastoralism and transhumance, at the very heart of the Sahel. Its land has been traversed for millennia by various nomadic peoples, including Fulani communities who have adapted their livelihoods to the harsh climatic conditions within the region. Agro-pastoral systems still prevail here thanks to generation-old traditions of established transhumance corridors, grazing areas and the endogenous organization of nomadic communities. These ancient livelihoods systems, also support the conservation of bio-cultural diversity.
