InfoPoint conference: Pastoralists, embracing uncertainty in a turbulent world

Pastoralism – extensive, often mobile, livestock production – offers vital lessons for navigating highly variable environments. Pastoralists produce food and manage ecosystems, making use of rangelands that cover over half of the land on Earth. Despite this, they are often dismissed as destructive, backward and in need of ‘modernisation’. Longstanding policy biases and negative narratives have shaped decision-making and investments in pastoral regions. A new approach is needed, informed by pastoralist knowledge and practice, to support livelihoods, to defuse ongoing conflicts, and to mitigate food and social insecurities.
