  Livestock farming is one of the most important sub-sectors of the agricultural economy of developing nations. In Africa, Mobile-Livestock Keeping (MLK) or pastoralism is crucial to generating livelihoods and food security for some large population of the people particularly in the arid part of the continent. With rapid urbanization coupled with the population growth rate, the demand for livestock products far outstrips supply. This scenario if not checked may imply more expensive food that may not be economically feasible. Climate change, however adds to this national challenge facing MLK. It impacts on livestock production systems and in turn livestock farming impacts on climate change. This study tends to review the complex interaction between MLK and climate change and proposes some strategies that could pave the way forward and help sustain MLK as a key feature of most rural livelihoods in Africa.
