(9) Livestock production systems in semi-arid rangelands - with particular reference to Africa



(9) Livestock production systems in semi-arid rangelands - with particular reference to Africa



Proceedings of the agricultural sector symposia January 7-11, 1980: 273-296



During recent years the World Bank has gained experience of the difficulties of developing dry rangelands occupied by traditional farmers and pastoralists, and also problems of implementing projects aimed at utilizing similar land for commercial livestock production. The paper evaluates the impact of several of these projects and how the Bank should assist its borrowers, and livestock producers to develop their range resources.
