Custodians of the Commons: Pastoral Land Tenure in East & West Africa
C Lane Editor
Book/Report, 240 pages
Pastoral land tenure is little understood and even less respected by many African governments and western donors alike, with the consequence that pastoralists throughout Africa are suffering through the loss of their lands. This book examines the plight of pastoralists in East and West Africa through a series of case studies describing how pastoralists organise land use, what distinguishes them from other land users, and the impact of pressures on Africa's rangelands on communal resource tenure.
