Building momentum around rangelands across Africa

Jan 23, 2019

The Rangeland Initiative is scaling efforts to improve land governance in Africa. The Initiative’s engagement efforts reached new grounds in 2017, when it connected with stakeholders and advocated for secure tenure systems in West Africa. While the process began well in East and Central Africa in the last five years, West Africa was yet to benefit from its extensive approach. In 2017, West Africa became a key engagement target; particularly as pastoralism prove to be a viable means of livelihood for vulnerable communities in the sub region.
