Working towards these commitments
Diverse Tenure Systems
The mission statement of PFE is to bring positive changes in the livelihoods of pastoralist through own and membersâ€™ capacity building, promoting commercialization and entrepreneurship, research and technology transfer, networking and partnership, good governance and climate change adaptation.
The Forum objectives are to promote pastoral potentials (natural, social, and human capitals) more than pastoral limitations (drought, conflict, poverty, etc) for sustainable and transformative pastoral development, represent and promote our member charities and harness positive engagement with the FDRE Government organs and development partners on the domain of pastoralism and CSO.
Pastoralist Forum Ethiopia (PFE) is a consortium of Ethiopian residents and foreign charities and legally registered by the Charities and Societies Agency under the Ministry of Federal and Pastoralist Development Affairs (MoFPDA). PFE was established in response to the resolutions made by the Ethiopian Somali and the Oromo (Borana and Gudji) pastoralist elders during their breakthrough conference of 1996. At present, the Forum constitutes 28 charities of which 10 are foreign charities to develop empowered pastoralist enjoying sustainable development.
