Mobile pastoral livelihoods and access to resources
The working paper Mobile livelihoods, patchy resources and shifting rights: approaching pastoral territories (2007, 24pp) of the International Land Coalition (IC) analyses the rationale behind livestock mobility in pastoral systems and the related rights of access to and control over natural resources. It looks at the role of the government and its interaction with pastoralist civil-society groups.
The paper is the outcome of an articulated process mediated via a Web-based discussion group involving 123 participants. It is meant to contribute to supporting appropriate policymaking concerning natural resources in pastoral areas.
