Only by supporting pastoralism, regional stability can be maintained.

Mobile indigenous peoples have sustainably managed the land they live on for centuries. However, in the name of biodiversity conservation, some have been displaced and removed from their traditional territories and left destitute and culturally weakened. While these practices have been largely unwanted in theory by biodiversity conservation agencies, progress in human rights observance and land compensation lagged behind new thinking on the relationship between people and protected areas. Thus, local and national policy and institutional change in the field have not kept pace with advances in thinking at the international level; nor do they always live up to public declarations of concern for human rights. Ten years after the Dana Declaration on Mobile Peoples and Conservation was formulated in Wadi Dana, Jordan, it is time to follow up on the achievements of the past decade and consider the future. This workshop report therefore, addresses the concerns regarding the welfare of mobile indigenous peoples in biodiversity conservation.
