Pastoralist grazing land
Protecting grazing land for pastoralists in Western Eritrea
Resulting from the continuous lobbying efforts exerted by NUEYS, PENHA and the pastoralist forums and committees, in 2009 the local administration in the Goluj subzone granted pastoralists a 450 sq.km grazing reservation area as a measure of good will. Sign posts were immediately erected by NUEYS (see photograph). This is a great achievement as the shortage of grazing areas and the clear designation of these areas remains a serious concern for pastoralists in the region.
