Cashing in on camels

LPPS has launched a project to promote camels as a source of income in Rajasthan’s deserts.

The project will:

  • Educate and raise awareness of traditional camel breeding communities about new marketing options
  • Support camel breeders in innovating their production systems
  • Establish linkages with research institutes
  • Liaise with and lobby government agencies for an appropriate policy framework
  • Catalyze private sector involvement and investment in manufacturing and marketing camel products
  • Strengthen camel breeders’ organisation to retain ownership of production processes
  • Facilitate establishment of a common platform for all stakeholders in the camels.

LPPS has opened an office in Jaisalmer to manage this project. Contact:

Support Indian pastoralists’ traditional forest grazing rights

India marks its independence on 15 August – an ideal occasion to press for the rights of pastoralists to their traditional grazing rights in the country’s forests.

A ban on traditional grazing in forests threatens the pastoralists’ livelihoods. Many are forced to give up keeping animals, in turn threatening the survival of many unique livestock breeds.

India’s forests must be conserved. But so too must the livelihoods and rights of the people who depend on them.

Please print out one of these letters, sign it, and mail or fax it to the addresses below.
