Title: The economics of pasture management in Georgia: An economics of land degradation study
Scope and findings: Longer heat waves, stronger winds and increasing demand for pasture land have had negative impacts on winter pastures, resulting in reduced biological productivity in the Kakheti region of Georgia. This compromised food and water security, and pastoral livelihoods. Three sustainable pastureland strategies are analysed in this case study focusing on economic consequences on pastoral households, and impact on land productivity. Potential scenarios covered resident pasture users (on village pasture), and small, medium and large migratory herders.
