INCLUSIVE CONSERVATION INITIATIVE
Pastoralists have systems for sustainably conserving land and resources in their territories. However, these systems have been weakened by mainstream conservation policies and regulations and challenged by climate change. This has negatively impacted pastoralist relationships with land and resources. Land and resources could be more sustainably managed if pastoralist systems were strengthened. This would, in turn, mend pastoralists relationships with their territories while also contributing to improved global biodiversity outcomes.
This project supports the self-strengthening of pastoralist communities in the Mid-Ewaso Ng’iro River Basin to enable them to better manage their territories using their own knowledge systems and in accordance with their own aspirations.
