000012201 520__ $$aMany upland communities in northwest Yunnan, China, are agropastoralist.  Agropastoralist livelihoods in the region are characterised by close  interactions between crops and livestock, and by seasonal transhumance.  Agropastoralist communities are relatively marginalised by technical  service agencies and policy making processes. The Center for  Biodiversity and Indigenous Knowledge (CBIK), a local NGO, has been  working with communities and extension agencies to develop approaches to  innovative technical and institutional interventions that support  sustainable livelihoods. The present article describes the issues faced  by agropastoralists in the region, the approaches promoted by CBIK  (participatory technology development and co-management of rangelands),  and issues faced in scaling up these approaches to influence local  government policy and extension practices.
