Which future for pastoralism in Europe? Feedback from the workshop in Moûtiers

On 7 March 2018, Euromontana organized a workshop entitled “Which future for pastoralism in Europe? The cohabitation with large carnivores and the attractivity of the pastoral jobs in question”, in Moûtiers, in the Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes region in France.
This workshop, organised for Euromontana’s members, allowed for exchanges and fruitful dialogue among members from 11 European countries and representing different types of organizations, namely research centres, farming organisations, environmental and regional development agencies and regions.

Pastoralism is a traditional activity of extensive animal breeding, carried out in particular in mountain regions. This form of breeding allows the development of territories with low agronomic value, often difficult to access or not mechanisable, and thus helps to maintain an economic activity in these areas.

However, the continuation of pastoral activity is threatened by various difficulties. During the workshop on 7 March 2018 in Moûtiers, two challenges of pastoralism were discussed, namely the cohabitation with large carnivores and how to maintain the attractiveness in pastoral jobs. This discussion workshop, aimed to better understand the situation faced by the members, the issues in the different territories and to have some food for thought for future activities.

You can find the proceedings about this workshop, including the presentations, on this page.
