This study was carried out by the Helvetas Mali development programme whose aim was to improve relations between farmers and herders in a context of pressure on natural resources and growing competition over their use in the regions of Kaarta and Fuladugu, Mali. The Pastoral Charter and other legal frameworks are discussed, as well as mechanisms for conflict resolution and participation.
