Hi Ashley

We aim to fulfill two short and long run goals:

1- SHORT RUN (25 Months, including the post implementation monitoring period):

We aim to reduce the number of annual conflicts to less than 50% following the next year of implementation.

Reducing the number of conflicts per year leads to better farming and less number of displaced people; both together will lead to better economic cycle. Furthermore, it will help to avoid the frequent loss of life and livestock. Our initial forecast that the nominal GDP for the local communities would be increased by 3% the year post implementation and that would result in better an healthier economic cycle for the targeted region (Darfur in Sudan as an example).

2- LONG RUN (47 years from implementation and 5 years from the kick-off):

We aim to reduce the number of conflicts by 80%, In addition, we look forward to generating enough data that would allow the local authorities to understand the herders movement pattern and therefore to plan better health and education services for them. As an example there are two key elements that affect the overall literacy rate of Sudan; the percentage of female illiterates and the huge school drop (and lack of education services) in rural areas.

By better understanding of the pattern we will be able to reduce the cost of expensive mobile and nomadic schools (71 in West Darfur, 75 in South Darfur and 86 in North Darfur) and health services in order to provide better quality of life for nomadic groups which will assist in achieving a sustainable peace and prosperity.

Finally, the generated data will allow us to understand in such a precise way the affect of global warming to the grasslands of the targeted countries and to predict its future consequences to give a push to the African anti-desertification efforts already in place.

This is such an inspiring and important cause .. I wish you and the team nothing but the very best in the coming phase.
