Complete Title: 
The land we graze : a synthesis of case studies about how pastoralists’ organizations defend their land rights
IUCN Publication
Abstract: 

This report, based on 21 case-studies, from 17 countries in four continents, describes how pastoralists successfully defended/asserted their land rights. The question at the outset was what elements contribute to the success of pastoralists’ securing land rights and resources. The goal is to make the knowledge resulting from the case-studies accessible to a broad audience, including those pastoralists and their organizations themselves, involved NGOs, policy-makers and governmental agencies on all levels. The case-studies include different types of mobile livestock keeping—namely both transhumant and nomadic systems. Most are considered ‘typical’ pastoralist situations characterised by increasing competition on access to and use of resources; marginalization because of invisibility, prejudges and misunderstandings; and insecurity because of political and economic changes.
