Facilitating livelihoods diversification through flood-based land restoration in pastoral systems of Afar, Ethiopia

Dezembro, 2021
Ethiopia

The pastoral systems of Eastern Africa have been affected by the alternated incidence of recurrent drought and flood for the last decades, aggravating poverty and local conflicts. We have introduced an innovation to convert floods to productive use using water spreading weirs (WSW) as an entry point to capture and spread the torrential flood emerging in the neighbouring highlands into rangelands and crop fields of low-lying pastoral systems in Afar, Ethiopia.

Participatory land use planning in pastoral areas: IPSR Innovation Profile

Dezembro, 2021
Global

Participatory land use planning (PLUP) for pastoral areas overcomes many of the challenges of conventional land use planning including creating hard boundaries around villages or other administrative units, breaking up and limiting
or preventing access to shared grazing lands and water points. PLUP for pastoral areas aims to keep rangelands
and particularly grazing lands intact working across administrative boundaries through joint PLUP agreements strengthening reciprocal relations, collective tenure and good governance and resolving and preventing conflicts

Scoping study on participatory rangeland management (PRM) in Wajir

Dezembro, 2021
Kenya

This report is a contribution to ILRI's RECONCILE project Livestock, Climate and System Resilience (LCSR), a research program that aims to improve participatory rangeland management (PRM) uptake by establishing a stronger technical base. The three-year project builds on the gains and lessons learned in the implementation of PRM in Baringo implemented under similar collaborative arrangements and promoted PRM both as a concept for rangelands management and restoration and as a process that promotes sustainable land use, policy and governance of rangelands and pastoral livelihoods systems.

Pathways for improving rangeland governance under constraining land tenure systems: Application of a participatory Bayesian Belief approach

Dezembro, 2021
Global

This paper analyzes the complex relationships of factors influencing rangeland governance in the arid areas. A Bayesian Belief Network (BBN) model was developed in a participatory way to illustrate and assess the weight of a combination of environmental, social and institutional factors enabling the achievement of strengthened rangeland governance at a local level. The Bayesian model was applied in Tataouine situated in south of Tunisia. A complex diagram was built in a participatory way to illustrate the most important interactions between rangeland socioecological system components.

Master of Science in Rangeland Ecosystem Management Curriculum

The combination of inadequate understanding of the dynamics in rangeland ecosystems and local livelihood systems are to blame for the inappropriate policy actions, unabated rangeland degradation trends, impoverishment of communities living in the rangelands, and their increased vulnerability to various shocks including climate change. The root cause of these problems is mainly linked to lack of inadequate skilled human resources, trained in rangeland ecosystem management at the postgraduate level, to tackle the complex biodiversity interactions in the rangeland ecosystems.

Bachelor of Science in Rangeland Ecosystem Management Curriculum

The School of Agriculture, Earth and Environmental Sciences strongly believes in supporting advances in various aspects of rangeland science and community development practices in the rangeland ecosystem. There is increasing need to have well trained personnel with expertise in sustainable rangeland management, to provide leadership and stewardship for a sustainable framework for managing rangelands.

On farm and off-farm feed utilization and improved management options: A Synthesis

Dezembro, 2021
Global

The challenges identified in the proposal of the CGIAR Research Program (CRP) on Livestock, for enhancing livestock production and productivity, have been the shortage of quality feeds, inefficient utilization of feed resources, degradation of rangelands, and lack of knowledge and skills of stakeholders in the feed production and utilization value chains. To address these challenges, the research and development work, innovations developed and tested, results-dissemination and concerted efforts towards capacity building have been presented in the following three main sections.

Rangelands and pastoralism of the Middle-East and North Africa, from reality to dream

Dezembro, 2021
Kenya

The Middle East and North Africa (MENA) is a vast area covering 20 countries from western Asia to North Africa, with nearly 9,000,000 Km2 and 303 million hectares of total rangelands. Rangelands play an essential role in supporting people’s livelihoods and food security. Mobile pastoralism is the most viable and resilient form of production and land use in the fragile drylands of MENA. However, the region’s governments have considered nomadic pastoralism backwards mainly because it was challenging to deliver mobile services.

A Scalable and Participatory Sustainable Rangeland Management toolkit with a holistic and multidisciplinary approach to rehabilitate degraded rangelands

Dezembro, 2021
Kenya

Rangelands contribute significantly toward improving livelihoods, offering food security, trade, and tourism for pastoral communities. Numerous challenges include poor government policies, loss of indigenous knowledge, and top-down approaches toward sustainable rangeland rehabilitation that often fail to consider local development adoption and sustainability. In such situations, effective management is needed for sustainable rangeland ecosystem goods and services in a context characterized by rainfall unreliability, poor soil nutrient status, and high uncontrolled grazing.

Status Report Joint Village Participatory Land Use Planning (JVLUP) and Participatory Rangeland Management (PRM) Sites Tanzania 2022

Dezembro, 2021
Kenya

Piloting participatory rangeland management (PRM) in Tanzania and Kenya was a 48-month EU-funded project. The project ran from December 2017 to December 2021. Its overarching goal was to improve the livelihood and nutrition status of pastoralist communities in East Africa by improving rangeland management to secure and better use rangelands and expand the role of women in selected pastoral communities in Kenya and Tanzania.

Botanical Composition and Species Diversity of Arid and Desert Rangelands in Tataouine, Tunisia

Peer-reviewed publication
Março, 2021
Tunisia

Natural rangelands occupy about 5.5 million hectares of Tunisia’s landmass, and 38% of this area is in Tataouine governorate. Although efforts towards natural restoration are increasing rapidly as a result of restoration projects, the area of degraded rangelands has continued to expand and the severity of desertification has continued to intensify. Any damage caused by disturbances, such as grazing and recurrent drought, may be masked by a return of favorable rainfall conditions.
