Our core values

Integrity

Integrity is at the heart of everything we do at PARAN. By staying true to our values, we are able to build trust with our partners and communities. This trust is essential in our work to promote the rights of pastoralists and to build resilience in the face of climate change. Our formation of PARAN is one example of how we are living our values and working together to create positive change. integrity is also evident in our day-to-day work, from the way we treat our partners and employees to the way we design our programs. By staying true to our mission, we are able to create lasting change that benefit pastoralists across the globe.

 

 

 

 

 

Servant Leadership

Our organization has been working in Northern Rangelands for over 30 years. This year, with 4 other indigenous NGOs we formed an alliance by the name Pastoralist Alliance for Resilience and adaptedness (PARAN). We've had a lot of success because through Servant Leadership our regional outlook improved as well approach when it comes down building movement-building power base which allows us advocate policies that are resilient but also promote rights based approaches within programming
That's why having such philosophy at core enable teams work together rather than against each other; they're always looking out not just their own interests or group needs--they put people first!

Long-Sightedness

Without Long-Sightedness, organizations are unable to plan for their future and anticipate changes. As such they can often be caught off guard by new challenges or opportunities that arise in the environment; this was something we realized at ISID as a result of having less than perfectionist visioning abilities on behalf of our membership body which led us into forming an alliance with other indigenous NGOs called Pastoralist Alliance For Resilience And Adaptation In Northern Rangelands (PARAN). The formation
of PARAN has helped them become more longsighted while also providing access points where one could learn about resilience building movements within society today - including how it relates specifically.

 

 

 

Sportmanship

We strive to have a positive impact on our community through the sport of soccer. We believe that good sportsmanship is an important part in playing any game, and it can make for better results off the field as well! Our organization encourages its members at all times display this valued trait - we want everyone involved with us taking time out from their busy schedules just so they don't miss what's happening here: Getting ready;calm beforegame- excitement during

Responsibility

Responsibility in our organization is important for several reasons. First, it allows us to more effectively advocate and engage in policy dialogue on issues related to resilience building and promotion of rights-based approaches. Second, it enhances our ability to work together on shared objectives and common goals. And finally, it strengthens our organizational capacity overall and helps us better serve our communities. In 2018, ISID Responsibility in our organization was enhanced by the formation of PARAN. This alliance of indigenous NGOs has helped improve our regional outlook and approach to movement building, while also increasing our power base to advocate for policies that support resilience building and the promotion of rights-based approaches. We are committed to continuing to build on this progress in the years to come, in order to further strengthen our organization and better serve our communities.

Innovation Solutions

In 2018, the Innovation Solutions in our organization (ISID) came together with 4 other indigenous NGOs to form the Pastoralist Alliance for Resilience and Adaptation in Northern Rangelands (PARAN). This alliance has improved our regional outlook and approach in movement building, and increased our power base to advocate and engage in policy dialogue around resilience building and the promotion of rights-based approaches in our programming. The formation of PARAN has been an important innovation for our organization, and has already begun to bear fruit in terms of increased advocacy power and reach. We believe that this alliance will continue to be a valuable asset in our work to build resilience and secure the rights of pastoralists in the region.

PARAN was established in response to the growing challenges facing pastoralists in the face of climate change and other environmental pressures.

How has PARAN helped?

PARAN has helped pastoralists in the Northern Rangelands to become more resilient and adaptable to the changing environment and climate. The organization has provided training and support to help pastoralists manage their resources more effectively and to make better decisions about how to use them. PARAN has also helped to build relationships between pastoralists and other stakeholders, including the government, to improve communication and collaboration. This has resulted in a better understanding of the needs of pastoralists and a more coordinated approach to meeting those needs.

What does the future hold for PARAN?

PARAN is a coalition of pastoralists from across the northern rangelands who are committed to promoting resilience and adaptation in the face of climate change and other challenges. PARAN was formed in response to the growing recognition that traditional knowledge and management practices are vital to the long-term health of the rangelands and the people who depend on them.

PARAN’s work is based on the belief that the best way to promote resilience and adaptation is to support the people who live and work in the rangelands. PARAN works to build capacity and knowledge among pastoralists, and to promote the use of traditional management practices. PARAN also advocates for the recognition of pastoralists’ rights and interests, and for the development of policies

We work with a range of partners to promote sustainable management of northern rangelands, and we also work to raise awareness of the importance of these landscapes.
