Collaborative Study Published on Options for Pastoralists to Secure their Livelihoods in Tanzania
A collaborative study on Options for Pastoralists to Secure their Livelihoods in Tanzania has now been completed.
The joint study is an effort to rise to the challenge given in 2006 to pastoralist stakeholders in Tanzania by the UN Special Rapporteur Professor Rodolfo Stavenhagen on the rights and situation of Indigenous peoples, where he argued on the necessity of developing options for securing livelihoods in the face of loss of basic resources.
The case studies present options for Pastoralist livelihoods in terms of current state policies, legal status and economic prospects covering the following topics:
- Current Policy Making in Tanzania - by Professor Amon Mattee, Sokoine University of Agriculture
- Pastoralism and Policy Processes in Tanzania: The Case of Mbarali - by Dr. Martin Walsh, Cambridge University
- Experiences in the defence of pastoralist rights: Current legal issues and statutory reforms - by Dr. Ringo Tenga, University of Dar es Salaam
- Experiences in the defence of pastoralist rights: Lessons and prospects - by Dr Sengendo Mvungi, University of Dar es Salaam
- Assessing the total economic value of pastoralism in Tanzania: The Case of the Usangu - by Professor Ntengua Mdoe and Mr Raymond Mnenwa, Sokoine University of Agriculture
The Study consists of two volumes:
- Volume One contains the main report

The study is commissioned by CORDS, PWC, IIED, MMM Ngaramtoni Centre, TNRF and UCRT. It has been funded by CORDAID, TROCAIRE, Ireland Aid and the Wildlife Conservation Society AHEAD Programme.
