A recent technical brief presents some major points about pastoral systems’ resilience:

  • Key factors supporting pastoralists’ resilience include strategic mobility, diversity of assets, adaptive resource management strategies,
    and strong customary institutions.
  • Pastoralists’ climate resilience is put under pressure by diverse non-climate stressors
  • Maintaining pastoralists’ resilience to climate variability depends on an appropriate enabling environment
  • Smallholder farming in drylands can learn from pastoralism to address the challenge of sustainably producing food in an increasingly unpredictable climate.
