Our paper “Network analysis of regional livestock trade in West Africa” has been published in PLoS ONE. We used market survey information collected by the CILSS across West Africa to build a network of animal trade movements. We then use network analysis to describe the network at three scales: whole network, market community and invidual market scales. This paper highlights the existence of regional trade hubs located in urban centers and within 50 kms of borders, and the role of Nigeria as an important destination of regional exports.
