Global Gathering of Women Pastoralists

This month I will be headed to India to support the work of the Global Gathering of Women Pastoralists.
I will be doing my best to blog regularly from the Gathering.  For those of you interested in the CFS, the Pastrolist Focal Points will be chosen at this meeting.
The objectives of the Gathering are:

  • To encourage women pastoralists participants to seek
    leadership roles
  • To inspire follow up activities that enhances empowerment
    of pastoral women
  • To highlight specific challenges faced by women
  • To foster exchange of experiences and learning aimed at
    strengthening the role of women pastoralists in decision
    (including policy) making
  • To contribute to the development of a global forum that
    will identify key social, economic, political and ecological
    challenges facing women pastoralists
