Realizing the potential of Africa’s rangelands
- Published on
Rangelands cover some 43 percent of Africa’s land area – approximately 5.1 million square miles. These vast shrub and grass lands are an important source of income for local pastoral communities and play a critical role in climate change mitigation as carbon sinks.
