We’re pleased to announce a new report by the Mediterranean Consortium for Nature and Culture detailing the many benefits of mobile pastoralism in the Mediterranean, and the world over. This 10’000-year-old practice, forgotten or lost in some places, may actually be a retro-innovative system of livestock management critical for the sustainability of our planet.
With over 100 arguments detailing the benefits of mobile pastoralism to biodiversity, carbon storage, wildfire prevention, climate change, food security and quality, traditional ecological knowledge, rural economies, tourism and more, Mobile Pastoralism in the Mediterranean: arguments and evidence for policy reform and its role in combating climate change promises to be a useful tool in helping pastoralists and the organisations that support them lobby and influence legislation that is well informed and beneficial to their way of life.

“We hope that this report, outlining the many benefits of the practice will go some way to fostering a different way of viewing the practice of pastoralism in the Mediterranean and to securing legislation that is informed and supportive instead of ill-informed and destructive” – Liza Zogib, Director, DiversEarth
