[INGLÉS] Land Tenure and the Sustainability of Pastoral Productive Systems: A Comparative Institutional Analysis of the Andean Altiplano and the East African Savannah

This paper analyses the correlation between pastoral land tenure systems and the sustainability of pastoralism as a production system in two regions in particular: the Andean Altiplano and the Kenyan Savannah. There, it identifies five types of collective land regimes.

Pastoralism is the main production system practised in rangelands and drylands, providing livelihoods to an estimated 500 million people globally. Yet, nowadays pastoral communities face challenges to accessing land and mounting pressure on their livelihoods due to misconceptions about pastoralism and global trends including population growth and climate change.

This paper analyses the correlation between pastoral land tenure systems and the sustainability of pastoralism as a production system. It compares two regions in particular – the Andean Altiplano and the Kenyan Savannah – where it identifies five types of collective land regimes. It explores how these land tenure systems have changed over time and analyses the impacts on the sustainability of pastoralism within these very different ecological, social and cultural environments. The analysis uses a comparative case study approach because it provides the possibility of isolating causal mechanisms for individual cases as well as constructing valid generalisations beyond the study areas.
