Mongolian Herders Practice Sustainable Resource Management

Seen here are herders in Tarialan, Uvs Province, Mongolia. The United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) supports community centres for Mongolian herder groups -- many herdsmen now develop their own land-use plans, conservation maps and sustainable practices for water, forest and pasture management.
