PASTRES: Pastoralism, Uncertainty & Resilience

PASTRES (Pastoralism, Uncertainty and Resilience: Global Lessons from the Margins) is an ERC (European Research Council) Advanced Grant hosted by the ESRC STEPS Centre at the Institute of Development Studies, University of Sussex and the European University Institute in Florence.

We are asking: What lessons can we learn for global challenges from pastoral systems responding to uncertainty?  And we are working in pastoral areas of China (Qinghai-Tibetan plateau), Italy (Sardinia) and Kenya (Isiolo).

We aim to foster a conversation with other policy domains where uncertainty is pervasive, including: financial and commodity systems, critical infrastructure management, disease outbreak response, migration policy, climate change and conflict and security governance.
