Boureima Dodo is one of the founding members of RBM and of AREN (Association for the Regeneration of Herding in Niger). As a Nigerien agro-pastoral farmer, he is convinced that pastoralism is an essential form of production that provides economic, social, cultural and ecological benefits to arid and semi-arid areas. Since the 1990s he has been actively working to ensure that a robust pastoral civil society will emerge at national, sub-regional and international level. He is also an active member of the World Herders Council, the World Alliance of Mobile Indigenous Peoples, and the National Consortium for Food Safety.
