Présentation

These four volumes, published by the Organization for Social Science Research in Eastern and Southern African (OSSREA) and distributed by the African Books Collective, describe four dryland husbandry projects (DHP) that ran in Ethiopia, Kenya, Sudan, and Uganda from about 1995 to 2003

Essentially they are reports written by the professionals who designed, implemented, and evaluated the projects in the respective countries.

Each volume contains a chapter that discusses organization and objectives-economic development, management of dryland ecology, improving quality of life of pastoralists-and situates these within current debates on development concepts and approaches.

Then follow a number of background chapters documenting the demographic, ecological, and agricultural context of the particular regions (but with no discussion of culture or social structure of the pastoralist groups involved).

These are followed by chapters reporting on project activities (e.g., reseeding of rangelands, water harvesting, or gender projects) and/or technical chapters discussing different aspects of the livestock husbandry system (e.g., rangeland conditions, water resource potential).

All volumes have numerous color pictures, figures, graphs, and tables.
