This study explored the nature of transhumant agro-pastoralism (TAP) in Bhutan in the context of global changes to pastoralism. Despite the widespread practice of TAP in Bhutan, there has been limited research on the nature of the practice, associated socio-cultural traditions and drivers of change. The findings describe the history, origins and contemporary practices of TAP in Bhutan. Drivers of change were examined and various perspectives on the future of TAP elucidated. Impacts of policy decisions on livelihoods and resource management are discussed along with implications and recommendations for future policies and programs.
