Abstract

This presentation discusses several problems in current discussion of the impact of climate change on pastoralists, especially the tendency towards a dichotomous discourse opposing views of pastoralists as victims and as adapters par excellence. The presentation proposes a broader and more nunaced view of impacts and adaptive capacity.
