Transhumant pastoralism is a reality in animal production systems in the Sahel and West Africa (SWA), which despite its importance, it still faces serious obstacles that threaten its potential production. This policy note aims at highlighting the best ways at international and regional levels in order to develop and implement policies and strategies aimed to support transhumant pastoralism while creating conditions for change to sedentary agro-pastoralism.

La ganadería móvil es el modo más sostenible de manejar los pastizales del mundo y los usos de tierra alternativos se asocian con costos ambientales y económicos. La magnitud de costos no quedan bien entendidos y pueden incurrirse sin que la gente se de cuenta de ello. Si un país que posee amplios pastizales desea reversar la desertificación y superar la pobreza, es esencial que reconozca la lógica ambiental de la ganadería móvil y su gran potencial económico.

Many policy makers in East Africa have preconceptions about the value of pastoralism as a land-use system believing it to be economically inefficient and environmentally destructive. Yet, this is not evidence-based. Not only is there no consensus on what is a dynamic economic model of pastoralism, no mechanisms exist to inform government decision-making of its comparative advantages over alternative land uses. A new conceptual framework is needed to assess the value of pastoralism that goes beyond conventional economic criteria in order to provide fresh insights to its contribution to poverty reduction, sustainable environmental management and the economic development of dryland areas of East Africa in the context of increasing climate uncertainty. This paper proposes such a framework.

This paper seeks to provide national and international policy-makers interested in the development of arid and semi-arid areas with background information and policy options, on whether and how to invest in mobility of pastoral systems in Africa.It first describes the trends leading to declining mobility, followed by a description of the key underlying causes for these trends and their impacts on mobile pastoralists. It then provides the rationale for investments and concludes with policy options which policy-makers face when deciding on priorities to be allocated to overall pastoral development, and to specific actions within pastoral development.

This toolkit gathers together information on 10 tools that have been successfully used by members of the International Land Coalition (ILC) to promote, protect, and strengthen the land rights of Indigenous Peoples and local communities. It is intended to facilitate mutual learning based on the good practices of specific ILC members. The opportunity to share knowledge is one of the main benefits of being part of a network like the ILC. Use these tools, adapt them to your specific context, share them with your partner organisations, and share with us your achievements and successes!
