Organiser(s): Coalition of European Lobbies for Eastern African Pastoralism (CELEP).
Session format: Film festival, screening of films with speakers.
A selection of films from the First Edition of the Perspectives on Pastoralism Film Festival will be shown to deepen understanding of how diverse peoples across the world gain their livelihoods from extensive livestock production, using primarily rangelands that are not suitable for sedentary arable crop production. Speakers will contextualise the films and provide updates related to how pastoralists have been impacted by government responses to COVID-19. Discussion will include features of pastoralism, the importance of mobility, strengths for producing value from rangelands and co-governance in multi-stakeholder use of the land.
