Research: understanding pastoral systems

Research on Indian pastoralism has tended to be isolated and often heavily theoretical. It has rarely added up to a significant body of work that could have policy implications or the ability to attract the attention of civil society, government, and industry. Our research unit has three overarching goals: 

  1. Deepening the field of pastoral studies in India 
  2. Facilitating big-picture research aimed at interrogating mainstream positions on grassland management and pastoral mobility 
  3. Undertaking applied research that feeds into Sahjeevan’s and CfP’s programmatic interventions. 

Towards furthering this agenda, we undertake or commission research or partner with a wide range of researchers, universities and NGOs to facilitate research on pastoral systems across the country.
