Example text

Pastoral groups such as the Somali, Room, Afar, Dinkier, Pokot and others continued to play a special role in these conflicts. Yet, the relationship between conflicts and resources does not get the attention it should. There are several reasons which indicate the political and economic marginalisation of pastoralism: • pastoralists’ contribution to the national wealth is very scant – less than 10 per cent of the gross domestic product (GDP) and less than 5 per cent of foreign export earnings for many east African countries • pastoralists constitute a political minority of less than 10 per cent of the total population of eastern Africa.

Three sets of issues have dominated the current debate on resource competition and conflict resolution and continue to be of great relevance. I hope that these issues will be address further in the future. First, it is important to examine the role of institutions and their capacity to mediate between the anomalies resulting from resource appropriation in the context of an accelerated rate of pastoral commercialisation, state withdrawal and environmental degradation. Second, what we perceive as local resource competition could originate from global processes over which pastoralists have no control.

Finally, impediments to appropriate enforcement and implementation can be mentioned. 34 AFRICAN PASTORALISM ADDRESSING INSTITUTIONAL FAILURE The above approach to the causes of unsustainability took us far beyond market failure and policy failure as traditionally understood.
