About  Reindeer Husbandry and Resilience project

GEF and UN Environment has endorsed and support the project: Reindeer Husbandry and Resilience, a global part of the project: Managing Peatlands in Mongolia and Enhancing the Resilience of Pastoral Ecosystems and Livelihoods of Nomadic Herders.

Indigenous reindeer husbandry represents a livelihood and way of life based on practices and knowledge developed through long-term experiences in living under harsh and highly variable conditions. Therefore, reindeer herders’ traditional knowledge, culture, and language provide a central foundation for rebuilding social ecological resilience locally, to be used to navigate through future shocks and disturbances. 

The overall goal of Reindeer Husbandry and Resilience project is to develop a Global knowledge-base and capacity for herders’ contribution to sustainable landscape management.
