Who we are

Centre for Pastoralism (CfP)w works across India on collaborative programs to enhance pastoralist livelihood security, explore ways of securing their access to grazing resources, promote research to enhance understanding of pastoral systems and undertake outreach to spread awareness on pastoralism and its many contributions. In advancing these goals, CfP works in close partnership with civil society, academia, government agencies and the private sector.

CfP is a Sahjeevan initiative that emerged from the 2016 Living Lightly: Journeys with Pastoralists Exhibition. Sahjeevan’s work on pastoralism in Kachchh, Gujarat over the past two decades has enjoyed a number of successes, and CfP was set up with the idea of expanding this work outside of Gujarat, in the rest of India.
