Despite improved understanding of pastoralism as a livelihood and a form
of land-use, pastoral development still faces major challenges:
continued vulnerability to drought, dependency on food-aid and exposure
to armed conflict. They may be exacerbated by demography or
environmental pressures, but equally, or more importantly, by the
persistence of inappropriate policies.
This briefing was based on a series of 8 Pastoralism Information
Notes produced under the overall supervision of
John Morton of the Natural Resources Institute, University of Greenwich.
Each briefing presents the context, policy implications, ways forward
and evidence of change.
