Pastoralists and Agropastoralists losing ground: A Horn of Africa perspective 

This is one of the research papers by Zeremariam Fre. This paper focus on Eastern Sudan and Eritrea, a region generally represent a wider Sahelian Scenario. Environmental degradation, famine, drought, displacement, encroachment and in the case of Eritrea, war, had a combined negative effects on pastoralism as mode of production. The paper highlights the prevailing definitions and misconceptions about pastoralism as a mode of production and form of land use. It also critically reviews government policies and their rationale, the ongoing environmental crisis and implications for pastoral people and their mode of production. It also brought practical examples of pastoralist resilience to harsh environmental situations as evidence showed that some pastoralist group coped better to the 1984-85 massive drought of the region. The concept of sustainable development, environmental and social security has also discussed as way forward for future research and policy. For the full version of the paper please click here.
