“Without rain, no property is private: Maasai Mobility in the face of drought”

Many pastoral livelihood and land use practices are aimed at reducing the risks involved in pursuing animal husbandry under conditions of low, variable and unpredictable rainfall of the East African rangelands.  The paper will address the difficulties of defining which strategy of mobility is more or less risky in a setting of social, environmental and economic complexity and the key question of whether land privatization decreases or increases risk in rangeland settings.

Presenter: Prof. John Galaty
