Sustainable Rangeland Management in a Changing Environment An Introduction to Good Practices

04 Nov 2019

This interactive session will share and discuss key information coming out of the new TerrAfrica/WOCAT sustainable rangeland management (SRM) in Sub-Saharan Africa guidelines, which have documented existing practices and approaches through over 30 cases practices.

The session will facilitate interactive exchanges and share visual presentations by experts who have contributed to documenting selected practices. The latter will reflect different SRM types (e.g. SRM with wildlife, community-based SRM and range improvement) based on cases from the three African regions of West, Eastern and Southern Africa. Following an introduction that will emphasize the significance of the rangelands for the broader landscape and ecosystem agenda, the objective of this session will help non-specialist landscapes stakeholders to visualize SRM practical options.
