Rwandan Red Cross: Experience in cow rotation

As part of the national programme, the Rwandan Red Cross has provided for shelter, food security and livelihoods activities, especially for orphans, vulnerable families and returnees. A livestock initiative is one component of the food security and livelihoods programme. This case study presents a cow rotation fund that was launched in a number of different communities across the country to make households and communities resilient to shocks. The cow rotation fund, which is linked to agricultural activities, aims for a more holistic approach in addressing food and nutrition insecurity problems in a sustainable manner. Published in 2013.
