Arguments in favor of education and training systems specifically adapted to the way of life and interests of pastoral and nomadic populations

This document addresses certain issues and realities of the education and training of pastoral and nomadic populations, describes the innovative experiences of several countries, and briefly outlines the process of multi-partner consultation carried out. It proposes a 12-point set of arguments to be taken into consideration when developing educational and livestock policies and when delivering education and training. Among the elements identified, there is the question of the way of life of pastoral and nomadic populations, which should be the starting-point for the design and organization of education provision; the inclusion of culture in education; the participation of the socio-professional organizations of livestock owners in the management of local affairs; the diversification of vocational training; and the increased funding to be allocated with a view to making the suitable provision more widely available.
