Rangeland management

Despite their significant economic and cultural value, rangelands suffer from low productivity and increasing rates of degradation and desertification. ICARDA aims to reverse these trends by adopting an innovative, participatory, and multi-dimensional approach that includes all stakeholders involved in rangeland management. This web resource is intended for policy makers and development partners, presenting proven and sustainable interventions that address degradation while raising productivity.
