The French Embassy in Nigeria is sponsoring a seminar on pastoralism in Nigeria, with an aim to explore and find solutions to end recurring conflicts between pastoralists and farmers.

The embassy made this known in a statement in which it said the semina is billed or Kaduna.

The embassy gave indication that the event coming up on Sept. 18, at Alliance Française Kaduna, is being organised in collaboration with the Pastoral Reserve (PARE).

“The subject of pastoralism and agriculture is without question, a sensitive and important one in Nigeria today.

“ In order to identify the root causes and solve problems raised by the clash of these two important economic activities, it becomes necessary to understand the way each one works within the society.’’

It added that the seminar will comprise a lecture to be delivered by Dr. Adam Higazi, a post-doctoral research fellow at the University of Amsterdam, to be followed by a discussion session.

“A knowledge gap in the study of pastoralism in Nigeria has already been identified, thus the aim of the lecture is to explore the knowledge that is currently available on the subject, specifically in the areas of ethnography, Scientific, and policy.

“The seminar that will follow aims to build on the lecture and encourage discussion on the ways that the knowledge base can be grown and updated in the three areas mentioned above.

“This will in turn help to improve policy making targeted at pastoralism.

“An output will then be put forward following the event either in the form of a policy paper or a summary with recommendations.’’
