Reindeer husbandry and political changes in Mongolia - A short history
Riccardo Pravettoni, GRID-Arendal
Despite the changing political landscape of
Mongolia over the last hundred years, the
traditional reindeer herding system has been
maintained. Nevertheless, recent political and
economic transitions and upheavals have
altered the Dukha community’s way of life and
relationship with their natural environment and
the herders now face an uncertain future.
