On 15 March 2012, the imGoats Inhassoro innovation platform (IP) held its fourth meeting at Manusse, Mozambique. About 40 participants took part in the meeting, representing producers, community leaders, paraveterinarians, extension officers, researchers, and meat buyers and sellers.

The meeting covered a range of topics, starting with a discussion on information flow from the IP members to the communities and back into the IP meeting. The relevance of feedback was explained and subsequently feedback was given by the IP members on the goat fairs in November and December.

As decided in the third IP meeting, each community would identify communal grazing areas. Therefore, in the fourth IP meeting progress about communal pasture areas in each community was discussed and follow-up actions were defined.

In addition, there was a discussion on the construction of improved kraals by participants and in the coming two months, five farmers will start to construct an improved kraal.
