image of Crossing Boundaries

This report examines how pastoral mobility has been impacted by the creation of unnatural boundaries within landscapes and how societies cope with these constraints through legal or informal arrangements. There are many examples from around the world of efforts to facilitate transboundary movements and transboundary ecosystem management by pastoralists.




This review “Crossing boundaries: Legal and policy arrangements for crossborder pastoralism” was authored by a team from the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN), led by Jonathan Davies and comprising Claire Ogali, Lydia Slobodian, Guyo Roba and Razingrim Ouedraogo. The work was done under the coordination and supervision of Gregorio Velasco-Gil and Natasha Maru of the Pastoralist Knowledge Hub of the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO).
