the Gizu

The Gizu study is an exploratory study
into the potentiality of the Gizu for supporting pastoralism and the co-existence of different producers in the wider region. 

The Gizu pastoralist system is
a long-established traditional system that generates significant benefits to the livestock, livelihoods and wider economy of Darfur. 

The Gizu system also contributes to the
peace and security of the region,

including the northern territories,

the central and southern cultivation zones,

and the dry season grazing areas. 

The Gizu environment and

pastoralist system of Darfur

has great potential for

supporting pastoralism and related livelihoods,


as well as peaceful relations

between pastoralists in the Gizu area,

and also peaceful relations

between farmer and

herders in the cultivation zone further south. 

The aim of this research study is

to support the sustainability of the Gizu pastoralist system,

and thereby promote the resilience of pastoralism and related livelihoods,

and maintain peaceful relations and security.
