Implications of population growth and declining access to transhumant grazing areas for the sustainability of agropastoral systems in the semi-arid areas of Niger


Implications of population growth and declining access to transhumant grazing areas for the sustainability of agropastoral systems in the semi-arid areas of Niger



Property rights, risk, and livestock development in Africa International symposium on property rights, risk and livestock development, Feldafing, Germany, September 1998: 371-395



To better understand the economic forces driving these transformations (from pastoralism to more settled farming), and to assess their implications for future livelihood standards and environmental sustainability, the paper has developed a bioeconomic model of a typical community in the semi-arid areas of Niger. The model is used to simulate the longer-term consequences of changes in population growth and reduced access rights to transhumant grazing areas.
