*NEW RESOURCE*: Mobile Pastoralism in Mediterranean Landscapes by Yolda Initiative is a report for Roads Less Travelled – a global partnership of Yolda Initiative, DiversEarth and Asociación Trashumancia y Naturaleza, which briefly outlines the state of (mobile) pastoralism in five pilot sites corresponding to three broad landscape types.
Local communities all over the Mediterranean basin still engage in many traditional cultural practices, which together with mobile pastoralism contribute to the ecological integrity and diversity of Mediterranean landscapes. However, the threats of modern era that these communities are facing today challenge their capability to maintain their traditional lifestyles. This calls for urgent action.
In order to conserve these traditional cultural practices, 13 organizations joined forces at landscape and regional levels, supported by the MAVA Foundation. At landscape level, five pilot sites have been identified. In addition to interventions at these pilot sites, mobile pastoralism is addressed at regional level by the Roads Less Travelled Initiative. This report briefly outlines the state of (mobile) pastoralism in five pilot sites and how the partner organisations support conservation of the practice at the landscape level.
