Pastoralists’ access to and management of natural resources
We, the “Coalition of European Lobbies on Eastern African Pastoralism”, believe that access to natural resources such as land, water, pastures and forests is of key importance to pastoralism. Pastoralists need to have control over and access to land and water in order to maintain their livelihoods and maximise their productivity. National and regional laws and policies should establish and protect rights of access to and use of natural resources, allow decentralisation and support local institutions.
