New ILRI podcast series 'The Boma' launched

Today we are launching The Boma, a new international podcast about livestock across the developing world!

The Boma is named after the Swahili word for the traditional circular thorn bush enclosures of East Africa built to hold livestock and keep them safe from predators. Like a boma, each episode encircles something precious—in the case of our podcast, it is a mix of stories and research about livestock farmers of the Global South. Listeners will hear conversations located at the intersections of livestock issues and climate change, epidemics, hunger, gender inequality and more.
