Pastoralism, Uncertainty and Development

This book explores the connection between pastoralism, uncertainty, and development. It makes the case that recognizing how pastoralists make productive use of variability and embrace uncertainty is central to understanding how pastoral systems in marginal dryland and montane systems work. Further, the book argues that such understandings about how reliability is generated in the context of highly variable settings offer wider lessons for rethinking development policy and practice in today’s uncertain, turbulent world.
