PENHA in the Horn of Africa
PENHA is a network - and its work covers all part of the Horn of Africa where there are pastoralists and agro-pastoralists. Our work is with pastoralists, where they are. Much of the time they are only living and moving within one country - but in some cases, they move backwards and forwards across national boundaries. Furthermore, the issues faced by pastoralists and agro-pastoralists in the different parts and countries of the region can often be the same. In some cases, pastoralists in one area have dealt with issues or used the environment they live in inventively and can share their experience across borders.
Over the past 25 years, PENHA has had conferences, workshops and meetings with representatives from the different countries of the Horn of Africa - and some even from further afield. In addition, representatives of PENHA have been to meetings in other parts of the world where the issues facing pastoralists have been discussed. This section of the website will summarise these meetings
