Water tower “forage Christine” enables dry season access to pastures in its influence area, where cattle come from stretches out into Mali and Niger with distances from 150 to 300km. In this area, pastoral livelihoods are jeopardized by (i) ongoing discussions about the institutional anchorage and vocation of the forage and its influence zone, (ii) organizational shortcomings of local authorities and management committees, (iii) dependency on external support for urgent troubleshooting and (iv) degradation of sylvo pastoral resources in the influence zone, due to non-adapted practices, recurrent droughts, agricultural encroachment, etc.
SNV (capacity building organisation) and CRUS (agro-pastoral organisation) initiated an action-research (2009-2010) to (i) secure the pastoral vocation of the resource base while improving the governance of the forage and (ii) conceive and test a multi sectorial, multi stakeholder and cross-border (inter-municipal, multi-country) intervention approach. Positive impact is expected at an estimated outreach of 3 000 pastoral households (20 000 men and women).

Brochure which describes the partnership between SNV and FLO (Fairtrade International). In 2006, a unique partnership was born. Responding to the need for an integrated, market-based approach to the challenge of persistent poverty, SNV Netherlands Development Organisation (SNV) and Fairtrade International (FLO) teamed up to help producers in the World South reach consumers worldwide via Fairtrade. As a result of the partnership, numerous farming communities in eleven African countries now benefit from expanded market access, increased production, employment and income, as well as broader social progress and greater control over their future.
This is the story of the partnership, the people involved and the progress made.
The brochure is a compilation of various case studies illustrating the impact of SNV's work in the life of millions of people in Benin, Burkina Faso, Cameroon, DR Congo, Ethiopia, Ghana, Guinea Bissau, Kenya, Mali, Mozambique, Niger, Rwanda, South Sudan, Tanzania, Uganda, Zambia, Zimbabwe.
It portrays the approaches and methods used by SNV to empower local communities, businesses and organisations to break the cycle of poverty by providing them with the tools, knowledge and connections they need to increase their incomes and gain access to basic services.
