The primary focus of this project is to understand and visualise the scale and spread of pastoralism and the routes they take for their migration across the country. The pilot of this project was conducted in Himachal Pradesh. Currently we have data from HP, Uttarakhand, Gujarat and Ladakh. The collected data will be overlaid on various derived datasets from satellite imagery like terrain, vegetation, drainage patterns, climatic conditions etc. and other secondary data to understand the relation of pastoral activities with natural and human induced occurrences.

Postdoc Fellow (Social Science)

The 2-year study on grasslands and pastoralism in Mountain and Semi-arid Landscapes hopes to investigate the drivers and scale of sedentarisation among pastoralists, examine the effects of tree planting on carbon stocks and socio-economic impacts in rangelands, understand pastoralists' decision-making processes and perceptions of environmental changes, and assess the effects of grazers on rangeland dynamics. The project will involve field surveys, interviews with pastoralists, ecological assessments and data analysis to provide valuable insights for policy interventions and contribute towards knowledge on pastoral systems and ecologies.
