This research focuses on pastoralists residing in Abalak, northern Niger, for whom a lack of secure land rights and competition over resources can have a devastating impact on their livelihoods.

It recommends that decision makers at regional, national and local levels support systems and structures that enable all pastoralists in Abalak to thrive in a sustainable way.
