Traditions endure for Tibetan nomads, but urbanisation looms

The number of Tibetans maintaining a pastoral lifestyle is dwindling, with the Chinese government pushing to move them into resettlement villagesYaks are still milked using wooden buckets with rope handles, and the animal’s waste is dried and burned for fuel — a necessity at the high altitude where trees are scarce. Chinese authorities say urbanisation in Tibetan areas and elsewhere will increase industrialisation and economic development, offering former nomads higher living standards and better protecting the environment. In Qinghai province, much of which is ethnically Tibetan, the urbanisation rate has increased from 40 percent to nearly 50 percent in the past decade, but one Tibetan member of a Communist party committee in the area told AFP that the process was happening “too fast”.
