Introduction to the Kegawa Herders Cooperative. The cooperative was established by Tibetan herders in the Yushu area to produce and sell livestock products, to help provide employment, and to generate income for local community members in ecologically sound ways. Founded with the support of Plateau Perspectives. The benefits of founding the cooperative include enhanced community resilience (in the face of climate change) and environmental conservation outcomes. Presented in special session co-hosted by Mountain Societies Research Institute (University of Central Asia) and Central Asia Mountain Hub (CAMH), at the Mountain Futures 2016 conference held in Kunming, China, on March 1-4, 2016; organised by ICRAF.
