Risk, Resilience, and Pastoralist Mobility

Based on new evidence from Darfur, this report presents a scientific account of the environmental principles of pastoralist livestock mobility, combined with a review of other key influences on livestock movements throughout the year. Our goal is to provide policy makers and other stakeholders with an objective account of what mobile pastoralists in Darfur can achieve, how they do it, and what they might need to do it better. The intention is to raise awareness and understanding, so as to inform programs and ways of working at all levels, which should also help correct misperceptions and begin to shift negative attitudes towards pastoralism more generally.

The report was originally published by the Feinstein International Center at Tufts University.
