Titre : Impacts of land use policy on environment, wildlife, demographic and socioeconomic indicators in East African savannas - the Serengeti ecological unit

Région : Afrique de l’Est

Code du projet : IC18960070 FP4-INCO

Durée : From 1996-10-01 to 2000-04-30

Descriptif
The main objectives are as follows : * To analyse the long term outcomes of different land use policies on environment, wildlife, demography and socio-economic indicators in the Serengeti Ecological Unit, which provides a natural experiment with an ecologically and ethnically continuous ecosystem divided into zones of comparable and contrasting policy lying either side of a national border representing major economic and political contrasts. * To use methods from broad-scale to micro-level to interrelate land use policy and economic contexts in the SEU and environs with : Long term vegetation and habitat change in different blocks,  ; Changes in human, livestock and wildlife populations with different policies,  ; Agro/pastoralist responses to land use policy and their implications. * To use statistical and quantitative analyses to help identify proximate causes and driving forces shaping these interrelations, and to develop explanatory models. * To carry out active dissemination by international seminars and publications, and through the national management roles of both DC partners.
