Livestock sheltering

Mrs. Julia Macro from the World Society for the Protection of Animals (WSPA) elaborated the importance of livestock sheltering in humanitarian settings. The following five important issues are presented:

  • Milk and meat;
  • Transport
  • Savings
  • Cultural implications;
  • Ploughing (early recovery)

Animals play an important role in humanitarian contexts, and logistic aspects such as grasing or space in camps need to be considered.
