In Pastoral Newsletter No. 23, mention was made of a workshop on 'Holistic Resource Management' held 15-17 December 1986 in Uppsala, Sweden. The workshop was organised on behalf of SIDA by the cosultancy firm Terra Nova and the Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences. Participants were mainly from Swedish universities and development agencies but also contained a few individuals from Denmark, Germany, Norway and the USA.The sole lecturer was Mr Allan Savory, the founder and director of the Centre for Holistic Resource Management in Albuquerque, New Mexico, USA. As the applicability of his resource management approach to the Sahelian in Africa was announced as a central question of the three-day workshop, a report about it may be of interest to a wider audience within the PAstoral Network.
