A Case of Benign Neglect

08 Mar 2019

The report A case of benign neglect: Knowledge gaps about sustainability in pastoralism and rangelands shows that global assessments tend not to disaggregate natural rangelands from other habitats, and pastoralists from other rural dwellers, which has resulted in significant knowledge gaps. Inadequate information may lead to changes being implemented where they are not needed or to practices that work being neglected or destroyed. Without further knowledge on pastoralists and rangelands, it is not possible to judge the impacts of current policies on their livelihoods and these ecosystems.
