Abstract: "Kishi Beiga is a vast pastoral zone situated in the extreme north of Burkina Faso. The zone is home to several different ethnic groups living in scattered villages and hamlets. This local population is both sedentary and semi-sedentary and they are joined regularly by transhuman herders from neighbouring regions. Environmental degradation in the area and extensive in-migration has largely destroyed the complementarity between agriculture and livestock, and the town systems now compete for land. Local management systems have broken down."
