Global meat demand and prices are currently at unprecedented high levels. Propelled by high GDP growth, globalization, higher incomes, and increased urbanization, particularly in the developing world, diets are rapidly diversifying away from traditional staple commodities towards high-value products, including meat. This growth in demand is projected to continue for the coming fifty years. This increase in demand for meat opens up new opportunities for IGAD member states. The IGAD region is recognized for its vast wealth of livestock. IGAD is one of the regions with the highest ruminant livestock concentrations in Africa.
