This report is the second in a series of papers that examine pastoral economies and development in Ethiopia. It starts with the premise that the government has an important role in promoting a positive view of pastoral economies and development to counter the very strong under-appreciation of the economic contributions of pastoralism. We believe that this lack of acknowledgement, in part, is based on misperceptions and a lack of understanding about the sector‘s important contributions to Ethiopia‘s national economy and development. In this report we address possible future scenarios for pastoral economies and pastoralism over the next 15-20 years and highlight four key contested areas that need to be resolved: (1) irrigation and other land uses versus pastoralism; (2) land tenure and the importance of mobility and flexibility; (3) settlement and the issues associated with pastoral sedentarization; and (4) trade and especially the question of overseas export versus regional/unofficial cross-border and domestic marketing.
