DGPP Advisory Group Report
Eight pastoralist leaders and experts on African pastoralism, who make up DGPP’s advisory group, met in May 2008. They debated the question; “What is the place of the DGPP concept within the pastoralist world?”. This short report is a briefing on how the question was answered and what it suggests for the DGPP team and others in moving forward in the pastoralist arena. The report considers the role of understanding as an objective and advises on criteria for effective pastoralist institutions that can take a lead on building understandings in the pastoralist world.
