Role of local institutions in reducing vulnerability to recurrent natural disasters and in sustainable livelihoods development

Source(s):  Center for Sustainable Development and Environment (CENESTA)

Case study: the role of Qashqai nomadic communities in reducing vulnerability to recurrent drought and sustainable livelihoods development in Iran.

More than 90% of Iran’s surface is arid or semi-arid land and pastoral communities have always played an important role in food production by developing creative and sustainable systems for the use of scarce natural resources. Although migrating pastoralists number only about 2% of the entire population (1.3 million pastoralists) according to government figures, they satisfy about one quarter of the country’s livestock needs.
