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:

 

The Study consists of two volumes:

  1. Volume One contains the main report
  2. Volume Two contains the extended versions of the five studies

 

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.

Views expressed in the studies are solely those of the authors.
