The roaming farming practices of nomadic pastoralists may appear to have altered little in hundreds of years, but in today’s unpredictable age of climate change these ancient practices may hold the key to flexible farming in hostile environments and donors should do more to support them, say experts.
Current perceptions of agriculture are too limited, according to expert Jan Douwe van der Ploeg, who would like to see donors embrace and harness the resilience and adaptability of small scale farmers. Donors should not overlook the advantages of small scale agricultural production, which offers greater flexibility particularly in times of shifting market demands, economic uncertainty and threats of climate change.
