Abstract

This chapter examines two case studies of recent private sector involvement in pastoralist areas of Ethiopia, and extensive mixed crop-livestock systems in Uganda, in order to explore broader issues of relations between the private sector, the idea of Corporate Social Responsibility, and pastoral development. It acknowledges the potential for the private sector to become involved in pastoral development, while raising questions about the propensity of private companiesto assume that pastoralists can and should be trained in corporate rationality, while resisting learning from pastoralists and about pastoralism.
