Description The paper recommends key controversial issues that need to be addressed by national policies and international development assistance with respect to pastoral development in a context of climate change. These include: pastoralism should gain recognition by policy makers as a viable system with the potential to sustain livelihoods; pastoralists need to be acknowledged as good custodians of variable environments; pastoralists need to benefit from the economic wealth generated by the exploitation of the rich underground resources; appropriate changes in government opinion and policy directives towards pastoralism needs to be initiated.
