Pastoral Ecosystem Management

Progetto concluso

The two main areas Green Gold is pursuing are the transformation of open access to pastureland into a controlled management system led by Pasture-User Groups and accelerated livestock marketing to reduce the stocking rate. In order to address these issues, Green Gold focuses on the following goal: To enable communities of herders to preserve, protect and nurture enduring pasture ecosystems to underpin sustainable livelihoods. Phase III is aimed at achieving four outcomes. Outcome 1 will continue with research to identify strategies and technologies for restoring pastures and preventing their decline, research education, improve knowledge sharing, and harmonise scientific standards. Outcome 2 will continue to advocate for policy and legislation to protect pastures while working to improve the implementation and coordination capabilities of the government and development partners. Outcome 3 will focus on scaling up the herder collective-action model to limit the open-access issue in pastureland use to more soums. Outcome 4 will seek to improve livestock productivity and marketing by closely cooperating with the Livestock Project and the Marketing Opportunities for Rural Entrepreneurs Project, both of which are supported by SOC.
