Mongolian Nomadic Reindeer Herders – Fieldwork

  • Fewer than 1000 active reindeer herders remain in isolated pockets across the Mongolian, Russian and Chinese taiga regions.
  • Climate change in Mongolia
  • Only 200 Dukha reindeer herders remain
  • Nomadic Herders - Mongolia

Jointly with herders, local partners and national authorities, the Nomadic Herders project is studying the impacts of land-use change and climate change on nomadic pastoralists, and further assessing the herders’ adaptation options and opportunities.

Reindeer herding, which since ancient times has provided a sustainable way of managing the environment and is the foundation of their unique cultures, is in real danger of disappearing.
