Announcing the ECHO East Africa Virtual Pastoralist Symposium 2022-01-19

29th-30th March 2022

You are cordially invited to join us for the 4th Pastoralist Symposium but this time VIRTUAL / ONLINE. It will provide a network and training opportunity for those involved in improving nutrition and livelihoods in pastoralist areas. It will consist of two afternoons of three plenary sessions and lightning talks (5 minutes focused talks) plus a live 'meet the speaker event' each day. These will feature knowledgeable and experienced speakers. The presentations are actually all pre-recorded except for the 'meet-the-speaker' sessions which are online workshops and discussion groups led by the speakers, facilitated by ECHO's experienced staff from around the world.  Participants are encouraged to register online for a $20 registration fee and that we welcome donations from good-willed individuals to help those who cannot pay this fee.
