Ce guide a été préparé pour aider les décideurs impliqués dans la formulation de politiques et la planification des programmes à: (i) acquérir des connaissances de base sur l'approche CEP, en mettant l'accent sur la production animale, la santé et la commercialisation; (ii) se renseigner sur la contribution des CEP aux moyens d’existence des communautés tributaires de l'élevage dans divers contextes; (iii) reconnaître les conditions requises pour la mise en œuvre réussie des CEP sur l’élevage; et (iv) comprendre le potentiel de l'approche CEP dans un large éventail de systèmes de production animale et de contextes socio-économiques.

Earlier studies have shown that pastoralist mobility offers significant advantages in drylands by enabling herds to access the best-quality grazing over the course of a year. These patterns of mobility face many challenges and are changing. This study focuses on livestock movement in West Darfur, Sudan. It uses GPS tracking to illustrate mobility during the hot dry season and the rainy season. We find that compared with the past, grazing zones are retracting closer to home areas. The report proposes a typology of livestock movements and describes the ways in which herders are responding to challenges related to pasture, water, and conflict and also to livelihood activities. We present provisional recommendations to serve as the basis for further discussion.

Dans la région du Sahel, les conflits d’accès aux ressources naturelles opposant communautés nomades et sédentaires ne cessent de se multiplier le long des routes de transhumance. Rapidement instrumentalisés, ces micro-conflits nourrissent l’émergence de conflits armés intercommunautaires qui alimentent à leur tour l’insécurité régionale. Face au risque de militarisation croissante de ces conflits agro-pastoraux dans la région, HD appuie depuis 2015 des réseaux de médiateurs communautaires au profit de la résolution des conflits d’accès aux ressources naturelles.

Change is coming to the traditional way of life of Mongolia’s livestock herders. And with it comes additional risks to their economic and food security. The problem is what’s known as a dzud – a summer of very high temperatures and little rainfall followed by the harshest of winters. FAO’s Early Warning Early Action system had started to pick up dzud warning signs in the autumn of 2017. This video showcases describes this approach implemented by FAO to mitigate the impact of the 2017/18 localized dzud on vulnerable herders.

In many countries, pastoralism has historically been practiced in areas that are now partitioned by international boundaries. This is a major barrier to sustainable resource management and to pastoral development. However, there are examples from around the world of efforts to facilitate transboundary movements and transboundary ecosystem management by pastoralists. This report examines how pastoral mobility has been impacted by the creation of unnatural boundaries within their landscapes and how societies cope with these constraints through legal or informal arrangements.

The case-study presents the case of the appropriation of pastoral lands by the coming of large-scale extractive industries in Turkana, Kenya. The case-study is meant to raise awareness among the general audience regarding the precarious situation of the pastoralists in the context of this new socio-economic development and lack of secure land tenure. At the same time, it provides this information as a case to local and global civil society, experts, institutions and policy makers. Moreover the document makes some recommendations regarding the scope and applicability of the VGGTs, especially the technical guide on improving the governance of pastoral lands in this context.
