In view of the importance of the livestock sector to the Somali economy and to people's livelihoods' and in order to capitalize on existing efforts, the World Bank (WB), the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) and the European Union (EU) jointly decided to support the development of a Somali livestock strategy. This strategy would be expected to contribute to the provision of a means to develop the economic, social and environmental potentials of Somalia and ultimately improve the livelihoods of both rural and urban populations. Support to the livestock sector is reflected in the WB's Livestock Development Policy and is a strategic entry point in the joint United Nations Development Programme (UNDP)IWB Country Re—engagement Note for Somalia as well as in the EU Strategy for the Implementation of Special Aid to Somalia (SISAS) and in the latter's Rural Development and Food Security Implementation Strategy for Somalia (RDFSS).
