Poverty among pastoralists, or poverty among those who live in pastoral areas Economic activity in pastoral areas much more than just livestock Development programs aimed at transforming, rather than strengthening or complementing pastoralism have largely failedSlide5: Figure 1: Income sources for the northern Kenya PARIMA sample Slide6: Income sources in shares, by quintile, 2000-2002 (N. Kenya) Slide7: How are we defining poverty? Income versus Assets Chronic versus transitory poverty Example: Confuse transitory food insecurity with chronic poverty—development failures. Different types of poverty each call for different policies to address them – i.e. ‘safety net’ versus other interventions Existence of ‘poverty traps’ below certain asset (livestock) holdings?’Slide8: Income-Herd Size Relationship in northern Kenya PARIMA sample (Barrett and McPeak 2005) Slide9: Local Definitions Community-level perceptions (center on livestock and similar to asset definition) Poverty as poor access to social services Often based in towns where herds are not Old and new forms of poverty Spatial aspects Settlement/peri-urban growth Uneven population distribution Social aspectsSlide10: Pressures on pastoralism Loss of land Complex land use/herder cultivators Stagnant livestock prices Capture < 50 percent of terminal mkt prices Conflict Political marginalization Declining per capita livestock holdingsSlide11: What can be done? Avoid creating another stereotype: e.g., pastoralism=poverty! Recognize land rights and need to maintain mobility Production improvements Improved marketing Restocking Slide12: What can be done?
