In recent decades mobile pastoralism in Inner Mongolia has been affected by political and social changes, such as the establishment of People’s Communes, the opening of coal- mines and the development of new cities. Privatisation of land and recent environmental policies aimed at preventing desertification have also had a negative impact on this way of life. The area over which herders can move their livestock has decreased, to the extent that herders now often remain in one camp all year round. This has led to severe degradation of the grassland. These issues are discussed in the context of the Jaruud hoshuu [banner] in eastern Inner Mongolia.
