Damonte, Gerardo; Manuel Glave, Sandra Rodríguez y Andrea Ramos (2016). The Evolution of Collective Land Tenure Regimes in Pastoralist Societies: Lessons from Andean Countries. IDS Working Paper, 480. Brighton: Institute of Development Studies.

This paper analyses how land tenure regimes of pastoralist societies living in the Andean altiplano have transformed over the last 50 years. It also discusses the implications of these transformations for the sustainability of resource management in these areas. Building on the framework proposed by Schlager and Ostrom (1992), this study employs a historical institutional analysis method to examine a specific case study: the land tenure regimes in the highlands of Caylloma Province in Arequipa, Peru. It considers changes to land tenure regimes and the main drivers and then explores the implications of these processes for the sustainability of resource management. The analysis identifies new land tenure regimes and considers their impact on the sustainability of the pastoralist way of life in the long term. Drawing on the research findings, a number of policy recommendations are suggested to mitigate these impacts for pastoralist societies.
