Range enclosure in Central Somalia

, : Range enclosure in Central Somalia. Paper, Pastoral Development Network, Overseas Development Institute, UK (25b): 28

The paper examines a range enclosure movement in Ceel Dheer District of Somalia's Central Rangelands. In this system of semi-enclosed pastoralism animals are excluded from small private enclosures on a seasonal basis in order to grow a crop of standing hay which is later consumed by the owner's animals at the end of the dry season when fodder is scarce. Private enclosures are therefore used in conjunction with a vast residue of unenclosed common rangeland.
