League for Pastoral Peoples

The League for Pastoral People conducts research and advocacy that supports and strengthens “small-scale” livestock keepers. In collaboration with their wide international networks of organisations that represent the interests of local livestock keepers – many among them pastoralists – they develop alternative approaches, challenge mainstream opinions, and build up the case for strengthening livestock keepers through appropriate policies and interventions. They support traditional knowledge and resources. A special emphasis is put on building the capacity of their partners to stand up for their rights under international legal frameworks and agreements, such as the United Nations Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD), the Global Plan of Action for Animal Genetic Resources (GPA), the UN Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples (UNDRIP), the UN Convention on Combating Desertification (UNCCD).
