Titre : Drylands Transform – Kenya ; Uganda

Pays : Drylands - Kenya, Uganda

Durée : 01/2020 - 12/2024

Contexte
Drylands cover 40 % of the global land area, host 2 billion people, and support approximately 50% of the world’s livestock population. In the drylands of East Africa, pastoral and agropastoral livelihoods are prominent.

This project will investigate the links between land health, livestock-based livelihoods, human well-being, and land management and governance. It will contribute with new knowledge for transformative change and sustainable development of rangelands in the border region between Kenya and Uganda

Objectifs
* Assess land health at the landscape scale and explore the links with human health and wellbeing. * Co-develop sustainable rangeland restoration and management options * with local communities in knowledge sharing hubs (‘livestock cafés’). * Understand the resilience of communities to seasonality and climate variability, and how livelihood strategies contribute to food security and human wellbeing in the face of environmental hazards. * Identify innovative land governance mechanisms and practices that effectively address livestock keepers’ dependence on both flexible and secure rights to land. * Co-design and evaluate alternative scenarios for sustainable dryland * transformation in East Africa with stakeholders at local to national scale
