Economic and Ecological Carrying Capacity Implications for Livestock Development in the Dryland Communal Areas of Zimbabwe

Research reports

Carrying capacity (CC) is a term often talked about in relation to livestock in the communal areas (CAs). It is the source of much confusion. This discussion paper will hopefully clarify some of the issues and make the implications for the policy debate clearer. It is based on the preliminary findings of field work carried out in Zvisharane District during 1986 and 1987.
