    The Voluntary Guidelines on the Responsible Governance of Tenure of Land, Fisheries and Forests in the Context of National Food Security explicitly mention pastoralists as users of the Guidelines and as targets of capacity building. Despite the historical and often ongoing marginalization of pastoralists, this technical guide has been developed in response to emerging opportunities to support pastoralists and to strengthen their land and resource rights.

    Les Directives volontaires pour une gouvernance responsable des régimes fonciers applicables aux terres, aux pêches et aux forêts dans le contexte de la sécurité alimentaire nationale mentionnent de manière explicite les éleveurs nomades comme utilisateurs des Directives et comme cibles du renforcement des capacités. En dépit de la marginalisation historique des éleveurs nomades, souvent encore d’actualité aujourd’hui, ce guide technique a été élaboré en réponse aux possibilités qui sont en train d’émerger pour appuyer les pasteurs et renforcer leurs droits aux terres et aux ressources.

    The Technical Guide on Pastoralism builds on a number of initiatives and studies from recent years that have shone a light on pastoral governance and land tenure: on the inherent challenges pastoralists face, the shortcomings of governments in securing pastoral tenure, and the emerging examples of success and progress from around the world. This Technical Guide provides solutions to securing pastoral governance and tenure without undermining the inherent, necessary complexity of customary arrang ements.

    This study aimed to evaluate the impact of climate change on the geographical distribution of selected native species from two areas from West Asia and North Africa. Three species representing two genera were selected for assessment of their vulnerability to climate change. The first species was Salsola vermiculata L. which is common to both study areas. The second genus was represented by two species, Haloxylon salicornicum (Moq.) Bunge from the Syrian rangelands and H. schmittianum Pomel from southern Tunisia.

    Sustainable development of pastoral and agro-pastoral systems, dominated by collective and/or tribal ownership of rangelands, is a key issue for the West Asia and North Africa region. These two systems are located in arid and semi-arid areas and are increasingly threatened by desertification process. The policy responses to tackle this complexity have been a sectorial and fragmented, “top-down” approach, putting forward technical solutions and neglecting the social context.

    Bhutan, Asia, Southern Asia

    Bhutan is least developed, mountainous and landlocked country in the eastern Himalayan range with a population of over 600,000. However its population and ecosystems are vulnerable to climate change. Despite a high level of environmental protection and awareness, Bhutan has become a victim of the global impacts of climate change caused by emissions in other countries. There is little historical climate data available in Bhutan; current records date back only to 1994. Consequently, the future climate scenario for Bhutan is uncertain.

    This report summarizes the proceedings of the workshop “Scaling Up Climate
    Services for Farmers in Africa and South Asia,” held in Saly, Senegal on December
    10-12, 2012. The workshop brought together more than 100 experts from 30 countries
    and roughly 50 institutions to grapple with the challenge of supporting vulnerable
    farming communities through the production, communication, delivery and evaluation
    of effective agrometeorological information and advisory services; and to identify
    practical actions to address those challenges at scale.
