This book is a call to act more strategically and draw lessons from 50 years of pastoral and agropastoral development investments, interventions and implementation in Ethiopia. It outlines the more resilient, prosperous, and sustainable pathways for pastoral and agropastoral livelihoods in the future. The book combines the results of an impact analysis of the development investments over half a century, a review of the existing thinking in pastoral and agropastoral development, and an assessment of the current socioeconomic conditions affecting pastoral and agropastoral communities. The aim is to paint a compelling picture of present pastoral and agropastoral development trends in Ethiopia and suggest alternative pathways for the future. Considering the challenges as well as the opportunities available in Ethiopia’s pastoral and agropastoral areas, recommendations are provided for future interventions to achieve drought-resilient, transformed, and sustainable pastoral and agropastoral livelihoods, ecosystems, and institutions that would result in peaceful, inclusive, and prosperous pastoral and agropastoral communities.

Indeed the considerable contribution of rangelands to livelihoods and national economies is being increasingly recognized. While acknowledging the very specific and widespread challenges of the rangelands, a review of their role and potential is emerging. This change in position has been informed by better understanding and appreciation of their social, ecological and economical dynamics, and the management systems that are evolving over centuries. Nevertheless, there remains confusion in the discourse of rangelands and their importance, role and future. The overall goal of these guidelines is to contribute to improved rangeland management by illustrating a wide range of innovative rangeland management practices. This is by grouping them, clarifying their characteristics and requirements, and by illustrating their impacts on ecosystem services and human wellbeing. The ultimate aim is to demonstrate – through this unique set of convincing case studies – the value and potential of investment in rangelands. It is also hoped that these guidelines will stimulate, and assist, the identification of further cases.

La région du Sahel est confrontée à des crises agropastorales récurrentes et cycliques, essentiellement dues à des sécheresses localisées et une forte variabilité climatique, exacerbées par des problèmes structurels et de détérioration de la sécurité. Ces crises ont des conséquences dramatiques sur les moyens d’existence des populations basés sur l’agriculture et l’élevage et aggravent l’insécurité alimentaire et la malnutrition des familles.

For thousands of years, mobile pastoralist communities have been moving through the rangelands with their herds in search of pasture and water, making the most of scarce resources. This traditional form of livestock husbandry has persisted over the years because of its well-known interaction with nature. However, the protected areas have become a real threat to the lives and livelihoods of mobile pastoralists in many parts of the world. In this paper, the authors look at the network of Spanish drove roads, with new data on the overlap between these routes, protected areas and areas of high biodiversity. It raises some serious questions for reflection by the protected area community in relation to the practice of mobile pastoralism. From basic human rights issues to acknowledging the services pastoralists provide. Readers are invited to reflect on an issue that is not clear-cut and requires much more dialogue, as well as joint action to mitigate conflict and promote collaboration.

Following the impact of severe drought that decimated pasture, livestock and crops in 2018, the situation of millions of affected families in the Sahel is fragile. If adequate timely assistance is not provided, the food security situation will likely worsen with 9.7 million people projected to be severely food insecure during the upcoming lean season (June–August 2019). Despite overall good availability of fodder resources, access remains difficult in certain areas of Burkina FasoChadMali and the Niger where insecurity persists; in other areas – certain parts of Mauritania and Senegal – fodder resources have been depleted or are very limited.

Traditional knowledge of indigenous communities cuts across numerous aspects of sustainability and resilience. However, the practice of traditional knowledge is yet to be adequately understood, with many research gaps confronting policy-makers. An understanding of the interactions of traditional knowledge systems, rooted in indigenous ways of life, cultural approaches and traditional occupations is important. The transformations are being experienced in societies, economies, institutions, technologies and the climate. This publication is a collaboration between the ILO and the School of Geography and the Environment, University of Oxford, which draws on recent and emerging research conducted directly with communities across Asia and the Pacific, Africa, and the Americas. It aims at sharing experiences gained by researchers and the communities themselves with policy-makers and key stakeholders.

In the definition of family farmers for the International Year of Family Farmers (IYFF) in 2014 and now for the United Nations Decade of Family Farming 2019–28, pastoralists are mentioned as a group needing specific attention. Despite this recognition, most statements, papers and information about family farmers refer primarily to small-scale crop farmers. As organisations supporting, working with or representing pastoralists, we want to draw attention to the importance of including pastoralists within discussions and interventions in family farming, also within the Decade. Here, we outline: i) the features of pastoralists that identify them as family farmers; ii) the importance of pastoralists for the wellbeing of nations, people and the environment; iii) specificities of pastoral farming systems; and iv) major challenges and emerging opportunities for pastoralists. To conclude, we propose how pastoralists’ issues could be incorporated into policy advocacy activities during the Decade.

Dans la définition des exploitations familiales utilisée pour l’Année internationale de l’Agriculture familiale (AIAF) en 2014 et, maintenant, pour la Décennie des Nations Unies pour l’Agriculture familiale 2019- 2028, les pasteurs sont signalés comme étant un groupe nécessitant une attention particulière. Malgré cette reconnaissance, la plupart des déclarations, des documents ou des informations véhiculées à propos de l’agriculture familiale s’intéressent essentiellement aux petits producteurs agricoles. En tant que regroupement d’organisations appuyant, représentant ou travaillant avec les pasteurs, nous souhaitons donc attirer l’attention sur l’importance décisive d’inclure ce groupe dans les discussions, ainsi que dans les interventions sur l’agriculture familiale, y compris dans le cadre de la Décennie.
