Pastoralist Transformations to Resilient Futures: Understanding Climate from the Ground Up is a project that aims to explore East African pastoralists’ perceptions of climatic changes and their experiences coping with related challenges. Another goal is to engage scientists, pastoralists and policy-makers in co-producing knowledge about local adaptation and solutions to climate change in the rangelands of East Africa. Dr. Kathleen Galvin and Dr.
East African pastoralists have historically coped with seasonal and annual climatic variability. However, as climatic changes are intensifying in the region, their livestock-dependent livelihoods are ever more vulnerable to increasingly frequent droughts and other extreme events.
Maasai pastoralists in East Africa are using video to share their stories and experiences about coping with seasonal and annual climatic variability. As climatic changes intensify in the region, their livestock-dependent livelihoods are ever more vulnerable to increasingly frequent droughts and other extreme events.
Authors have documented a “research-implementation gap” in conservation. Research intended to inform conservation practice often does not, and practice often is not informed by the best science. We used the literature on policy learning (i.e., literature attributing policy change to learning) to structure a study of how practice is informed by science in collaborative conservation. We studied implementation by U.S. states of state wildlife action plans.
