 DESCRIPTION
spacer

This book is based on a workshop on participatory assessment of sustainable scenarios for the Himalayan pastoralism, which focused on identifying crucial issues and determining priorities in order to address rangeland concerns, especially in the light of managing such remote areas at high elevations, sparsely populated, and subject to harsh climates.

The papers in this volume seek to address three principle areas of concern: Pastoral Issues and Development; Biodiversity and Grazing Resource Availability; and Range Resource Management. This unique collection of research papers touches on the value of the unique flora and fauna of the rangelands and the need to preserve them in order to conserve biodiversity. Policies are also discussed in the context of their appropriateness to the rangeland systems and in the context of how poor perceptions have led to limited support for livestock husbandry in the Himalayan region.

It is hoped that the book will prove to be useful for the scholars, environmentalists, sociologists, policy-makers and those interested in the subject.
