23. Economic Interactions of Pastoral Lowland and Highland Systems and Implications for Sustainable Livelihoods: A Case Study in Northeastern Ethiopia
Author: Workneh Negatu
FSS Research Report: No. 7

This study investigated the nature, scope and constraints to economic and market interactions of lowland and highland economic systems and the implications of the interactions for secure and sustainable livelihoods of pastoralists. These interactions have been in practice for a long time albeit in a fragmented and irregular manner due to various constraints, including poor transportation and road connections, and source-related conflicts among the Afar, Amhara, Argoba and Oromo communities. The research examined the impacts of such variables as education, wealth, gender and social relations on highland lowland interactions.
