mongolia_icr_thumbIn Oslo recently there was a landmark meeting between nomadic peoples. The President of Mongolia was in Oslo accompanied by a large delegation that included several reindeer herders. The President and delegation had a number of meetings in the city, including with the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the Norwegian Chamber of Commerce and with the team from the International Centre for Reindeer Husbandry and the Association of World Reindeer Herders.

The International Centre for Reindeer Husbandry had good reason to meet with the delegation as ICR is a key partner in an innovative project entitled  Nomadic Herders which was born in 2010 and is a joint initiative by UNEP/GRID-Arendal, the Association of World Reindeer Herders and the UArctic EALAT Institute at the  International Centre for Reindeer Husbandry.

The project is also part of the United Nation Environment Programme's (UNEP) work on Ecosystem-based Adaptation and funded by the Norwegian Ministry of Foreign Affairs. The project builds on the results and experiences from the International Polar Year EALAT project on climate change adaptation in reindeer husbandry.
