The film on pastoralism in Mauritania made by Terre Nourricière as part of the RIMRAP Programme was selected for the 2019 edition of the "Pastoralismes et Grands espaces" Film Festival! This festival was held on October 11th, 12th and 13th in Grenoble, France.
This programme is part of cooperation between the EU and the Islamic Republic of Mauritania on a long-term response to food insecurity and malnutrition in Mauritania. It aims to
help lift large numbers of rural people out of extreme poverty by strengthening the resilience of communities that are most vulnerable to food and nutritional insecurity. RIMRAP provides
institutional support for the Ministries of Agriculture and Livestock through their central and deconcentrated services, and places particular emphasis on structuring the agro-pastoral
sector by improving access to services (basic infrastructures, improved access to agro-pastoral spaces, rural councils, outreach, etc.) and agro-pastoral support, taking account of the
significant potential for productive land use, climate variability, etc.
The film shows the lives and issues of three different types of breeders in Mauritania. It is available in French.
