Summary
"This book shows how land tenure laws, decentralization policies, institutional capacity building, common property management, conflict resolution and participatory development can be made more responsive to the needs of pastoralists and those practising transhumance today in order to achieve ecologically and economically sustainable development in arid Africa." "Scientists, students, development experts, government officials and bilateral and multi-later development organizations will find new research presented in this book that is highly relevant to their work."--Jacket
