Item description for Changing Systems of Livelihood in Rural Sudan by Abdel Ghaffar M. Ahmed...

The relevance of anthropology to development planning, especially in the rural areas of Sudan, is a central source of debate at institutes such as the University of Khartoum and OSSREA, where the contents of this book originated; and systems of livelihoods in the drylands and pastrolism represent complex systems. This study focuses on marginalised pastoral societies on the Savannah belt of the Sudan. It considers the economic and social dynamics, which affect the livelihoods of these groups, the impacts of state policies and development interventions. Contents: the rufa'a al-Hoi economy; the rufa-a al-Hoi of the southern Funj area of Sudan; nomadic competition in the Funj area; the negligence of pastoral nomads; the role of the sendentary population in Ruda'a al-Hoi politics; tribal and sedentary elites; the relevance of indigenous systems and their organisation of production to rural developments; small urban centres; and the extended family and development in Sudan. The author is a leading Sudanese athropologist. This book brings together three decades of his work on the livelihoods of pastoralist communities.
