The race for the market that marked the last two decades have led nomads to invest in higher numbers of cattle. They saw opportunities for more income and herding was all they knew. The negative impact has been the decimation of the pasture, which results in gradual erosion and an impact on the animals’ health. Establishing Norlha has proven that herding is not the only means of livelihood and that income can be diversified. Many families have now sold their animals, opting for a regular job and the stable income that it brings. This has eased the burden on those who continue to herd and now have more and better grassland to feed their flocks.
