Supporting pastoralism

Pastoralists produce food in the world’s driest, coldest, hottest as well as mountainous environments, yet they are often misunderstood and marginalized. They not only sustain vibrant and culturally unique communities, but are also linked with many other people who depend on their activities. Pastoral production systems produce a variety of products and services from multiple sources in the ecosystem. The Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) supports pastoralists and agro-pastoralists worldwide in a wide range of areas to promote food security, resilient livelihoods, pastoral economies and healthy environments.

This product is part of a broader series composed by several factsheets about main activities of the AG Department. This factsheet in particular is about pastoralist and their important role in the production systems. The factsheets illustrates FAO activities and projects that aim to support pastoralists.
