Regenerating Rangelands

Dezembro, 2022

Participatory rangeland management (PRM) is a process building the capacities of local communities to better manage their lands, reduce natural resource conflicts, and build good governance. This film shown through the eyes of two local protagonists – one in Kenya and Tanzania – describes the PRM approach and how their communities are benefiting from it. A beautiful film highlighting some of the challenges that pastoralists face as well as solutions to overcome them.

Climate change and transboundary risks in African rangelands

Dezembro, 2022

This paper aligns current thinking on transboundary climate risk pathways with research on climate risk for pastoralists in African rangelands. Four pathways for transboundary transmission of climate risk were used as a framework for a narrative review of research literature on pastoralism and climate change. Selected cases were presented to highlight conclusions and recommendations. Pastoralism research reflects many aspects of risk management, particularly its relationship to mobility and the development of appropriate non-equilibrium models of pastoralist decision-making.

Participatory rangeland management: A vehicle for pastoralist women’s empowerment in Ethiopia

Dezembro, 2022

Pastoralist tenure systems are highly complex. Where customary institutions are functioning well, pastoralist women access and use resources as a member of a pastoralist group. Although policy and legislation call for more equity across societies, providing individual titles to women is not necessarily the answer. Strengthening women’s rights within the collective society while also supporting women’s capacities and abilities to participate meaningfully in decision-making processes and hold leadership positions will support more sustainable gender equality outcomes.

Understanding pastoralists’ preferences for goat traits: Application of all-levels and end-point choice experiments

Dezembro, 2022

Pastoralists are generally known for carefully selecting and maintaining their livestock. In this study, we examine the preferences of pastoralists for goat traits. We employ discrete choice experiments of all levels and endpoints to investigate the relative weights that pastoralists in southern Ethiopia attach to the different traits of does and bucks. Based on data generated from 600 pastoral households, we estimated willingness to pay, trait preference heterogeneity, and attribute nonattendance using different specifications of the mixed logit model.

Élevages au pâturage et développement durable des territoires méditerranéens et tropicaux

Peer-reviewed publication

Pourtant, ces élevages ont été longtemps en marge des efforts d’investissement en agriculture. Ils disposent cependant d’atouts indéniables pour répondre à ces ODD en interaction avec d’autres formes d’élevage présentes dans les territoires. Mais ils font face aussi à un ensemble de contraintes qui remettent en question leur pérennité.

La synthèse interdisciplinaire présentée ici vise à répondre à trois questions essentielles :

Pastoralisme nomade et tensions sociales au Sud du Maroc

Journal Articles & Books
Dezembro, 2021

Cet article aborde les tensions engendrées par les mouvements des troupeaux des éleveurs nomades et la compétition autour des ressources naturelles. Nous étudions le cas des éleveurs nomades (kassâba) sahariens originaires du Sud-ouest marocain dans leur mobilité à la recherche des pâturages dans la région du Souss. Les déplacements de ces kassâba provoquent une situation conflictuelle entre les éleveurs d’une part et la population locale villageoise et montagnarde d’autre part.

Réformes Pour Réguler L'Accaparement Des Terres Au Profit Des Jeunes En Afrique De L’Ouest Francophone : Cas Du Bénin Et Du Sénégal.

Context and background Land grabbing has been in the news in Africa in recent years. Fertile land is increasingly falling into the hands of national or international private investors. Farmers with rudimentary means, youth, women, indigenous people, and pastoralists are the actors most affected by large-scale land grabs. Fertile land is becoming increasingly scarce and the public authorities do not seem to be determined to put in place safeguards to regulate this situation.
