There are several organisations with specific support programmes for urban livestock operators, many of them in the livestock rich Sahel. In Burkina Faso, the Centre d étude, de formation et de réalisations agropastorales (Centre for agro-pastoral studies, training and projects) interacts with a network of journalists who gather and disseminate information about animal health and supply networks (CEFRAP, BP 276 Ouaga- dougou 09, Burkina Faso; fax: +226 34 37 79; Email: cercoop. firstname.lastname@example.org).
