Pastoralism is a way of life for millions of people around the world. Though they ensure food security in some of the world’s harshest environments, pastoralist groups – many of them made up of Indigenous Peoples – are largely excluded from public discourse and policy-making surrounding land use and tenure. This marginalization is compounded by the degradation of their ancestral lands, the depletion of their natural resources, and the systematic violation of their rights.
Agroecology Fund grantee partners from Africa to Asia to the Americas are defending pastoralist land and cultures while restoring grazelands and Indigenous breeds. In doing so, they strengthen community food security and sovereignty, and conserve ancestral practices that are cornerstones of climate-resilient food systems.
