Camel pastoralism as a food system in the Sudan: limitations and changes

, : Camel pastoralism as a food system in the Sudan: limitations and changes. Nomadic Peoples ( 29): 61-67

The drylands of the Sudan are witnessing a disintegration of subsistence economies and a growing food insecurity which is gradually becoming a long-lasting phenomenon rather than a temporary one. This paper endeavours to outline the camel pastoralism production system in the Sudan, and examines whether it can exist as a food system within itself or if it has to work in close coordination with other production systems in and out of its locality.
