Pastoralism has been often portrayed as an economically marginal and environmentally unsustainable production system, and pastoralists as highly vulnerable in the face of climate change and other environmental shocks.
The latest development of this positive alternative narrative has been presented by Saverio Krätli in the Pastoral Development Orientation Framework launched by MISEREOR just before CELEP’s annual general meeting in 2019. This narrative provides a good basis on which to develop a more consistent and united understanding of pastoral systems amongst those working to support pastoralism.
Overall objective: The overall objective of this webinar was to exchange on a shared understanding, view and vocabulary about pastoralism with actors involved in technical programmes as well as advocacy concerning pastoralism.
