Summary (continued)
This goes hand in hand with a new wave of land alienation in the form of large-scale land acquisitions or ‘land grabbing’ (including water grabbing and ‘green grabbing’ processes). The paper then outlines different coping and adaptation strategies adopted by pastoral groups in a context in which a range of different global and local political, economic and ecological situations interrelate (‘glocal’). Finally, the paper discusses the way in which pastoralism could be reframed in a participatory way in the future.
