Rangelands represent one of the most important socioecological systems in Tunisia. However, since independence (1956), despite the Tunisian Government’s efforts in rangeland development, results and impacts in terms of efficiency, sustainability and governance of rangelands remain below the expectations of rangeland end users, donors and development agencies. As part of an in-depth evaluation of rangeland governance challenges and opportunities, a series of targeted investigations were conducted by ICARDA-IRA, based on a scoping conceptualization and analysis of rangeland governance in south Tunisia. The objective of this policy brief is to contribute to a better framing of rangeland governance, including how it is defined and outlining effective approaches for the assessment of rangeland governance in a practical way that can be easily communicated to policymakers and other pastoral development agents.
