Land degradation, stocking rates and conservation policies in the communal rangelands of Botswana and Zimbabwe

Research reports

Common rangeland management policies in Botswana and Zimbabwe are based on incorrect technical assumptions about the sustainability of semi-arid rangeland, the nature of rangeland degradation, and the benefits of destocking. Consequently, inadequate policies, stressing the need to destock and stabilise the rangelands, are persued.
