Management of Collective Rangelands in Rhamna (Morocco)

Rangelands are severely degraded in Morocco. This has stimulated public interventions to reduce the pressure on natural resources and promote sustainable management. In Rhamna, a region traditionally used for transhumance, such efforts have met with limited success because they have not taken into consideration institutional aspects and local points of view. This project aims to learn from past state interventions in rangeland management, and test new alternatives based on a social learning approach. The findings will be disseminated to the relevant institutions and policymakers at the local, regional and national level.
