What are the perceptions of agro pastoralists and Fulani herders related to uncertainties and what are the practices that they mobilize?

My research is focused on an analysis of the agency of agro pastoralists and Fulani herders through their understanding of uncertainty as humans, with their past experiences and hopes for the future.

Specifically, it involves: (i) identifying and describing past uncertainties and practices implemented by agro-pastoralists and Fulani herders. (ii) analyze their current knowledge of uncertainties related to their activities and their daily practices; (iii) analyze uncertainties that they expect in the future and the creative practices to deal with them.
