        This volume examines the political dynamics of natural resource governance processes through a range of comparative case studies across east and southern Africa. These cases include both local and national settings, and examine issues such as land rights, tourism development, wildlife conservation, participatory forest management, and the.   Prof. Aderanti Adepoju of the Human Resources Development Centre in Lagos, Nigeria notes that over 31 million Africans live outside the country of their birth, the majority within the African continent. In fact, the majority of migration is intra-regional or intra-African, especially in west and southern Africa and only about 25 percent of African migrants go to Europe.

In Institutional Dynamics in Communal Grazing Regimes in Southern Africa (B. Cousins, ed.). Centre for Applied Social Studies. University of. Grazing strategies found in communal areas are a result of interactions between social, ecological and institutional factors.

To understand the processes in operation, and help in improving management, the perceptions of communal people on institutional structures, utilisation patterns and possible intervention for improving their grazing lands were studied. The impact of livestock grazing on soil nutrients and vegetation parameters was studied in dry montane steppes of southern Mongolia in order to assess the risk of habitat degradation.

Data were collected along transects radiating away from permanent water sources. Dung unit density counts revealed gradients of livestock activity, but utilization belts around water sources overlapped.

Residents of Southern Africa depend on rangeland for food, livelihoods, and ecosystem services. Sustainable management of rangeland ecosystems requires attention to interactive effects of fire and grazing in a changing climate.

It is essential to compare rangeland responses to fire and grazing across space and through time to understand the effects of rangeland management practices on. In East Africa, ecosystems are shaped by long term interactions between changing climates and human activities [6,7].Human impact, through land use change, is one of the strongest factors changing rangelands and is driven by the demand for ecosystem services [3,8].However, rainfall is a major control of human land use options [].Rainfall seasonality affects pasture production independent of.

The general distinctions between open access, state property, common property and private property are now well established in the academic literature. When applied to African rangelands, however, common property admits a wide variety of resource management regimes.

To formulate effective policies it is necessary to understand the structure and operations of particular regimes. Billy Mukamuri is a full-time lecturer and researcher at CASS. His research interests are on understanding local level institutional dynamics, particularly in communal areas.

He has published extensively on social forestry issues, largely from south central Zimbabwe. SOUTHERN AFRICA. Martin Adams, Sipho Sibanda and Stephen Turner. This paper reviews land tenure reform on communal land against the background of the repossession of private land occupied by white settlers.

The purpose and scope of the proposed tenure reform in the former homelands of South Africa are described, as. Beyond Proprietorship presents a range of contributions to the May conference held to honour Murphree’s work, and it conveys his central concerns of equality and fairness.

The focus is on marginalised people living in poor and remote regions of Zimbabwe, but also includes important discussions about the policy implications of regional tenure regimes, and the place of local resource.

Thus, the management of water for communal agriculture and water supply should be well coordinated to enhance drought resilience. Notwithstanding the interrelations among water management institutions in South Africa, there are complexities in the way these institutions work together, both in preparation for, and during drought times.

This study showed that all community members benefited from ecosystem services from wetlands in the Hlabathi administrative area, South Africa, but men tended to benefit more than women.

Besides this gender difference, which could reflect an underlying power imbalance, the use of ecosystem services was consistent regardless of social capital. For Peer Review Only 1 increasing success of C3 trees and shrubs relative to grass (Scholes and Archer2 Bond et al.

) and affects all tenure regimes. 3 4 In South Africa, the degradation debate is polarised between extensive freehold farms, 5 and collective livestock production in traditional villages.

While consideration of the role of communal grazing lands in household livelihoods is naturally centred on rural areas, mention also needs to be made of urban commonages. Vetter () alludes to the use of municipal commonages in South Africa for livestock grazing by urban residents.

Abstract. This book is based on a Special Issue of the journal LAND that draws together a collection of 11 diverse articles at the nexus of climate change, landscapes, and livelihoods in rural Africa; all explore the links between livelihood and landscape change, including shifts in farming practices and natural resource use and management.

control rights: rights to make decisions how the land should be used including deciding what crops should be planted, and to benefit financially from the sale of crops, etc.
