• So we see that pastoral communities in different parts of the world are affected in a variety of different ways by changes in the modern world
  • The patterns of their travel are impacted by new regulations and borders .
  • With increasing restrictions on their mobility , pastoralists find it difficult to move for pastures
  • Grazing becomes a problem as pasture areas disappear , and pastures that are still present deteriorate as a result of ongoing overgrazing .
  • Droughts turn into crises when a big number of animals perish . Yet, pastoralists do adapt to new times
  • They alter the routes of their yearly migration , decrease the number of their cattle , demand entry rights into new territories , put political pressure on the government to provide aid , subsidies , and other types of assistance , and demand the right to manage forests and water resources .
  • Pastoralists are not relics of the past . They are not individuals who don't belong in the contemporary era.
  • Environmentalists and economists alike are starting to realise how well-suited pastoral nomadism is for many hilly and arid parts of the planet .
