Mounir Louhaichi, Mouldi Gamoun, Sawsan Hassan. (30/5/2021). Sustainable Rangeland Management Practices for Arid and Semi-Arid Ecosystems Restoration.
The present work provides a good overview of activities of rangeland restoration projects, based on recent information and results provided by ICARDA, using different methods and means.. Managers need to believe that the challenges facing drylands may be daunting but are not insurmountable. Moreover, the key to achieving large-scale restoration of degraded rangeland is integrating suitable practices into rangeland management and that would assist rangeland managers and users to develop the appropriate strategies and help make the links with government policy and program. This can be done by implementing appropriate methods of restoration such as water harvesting, shrub plantation, direct seeding, and soil surface scarification. Successful restoration can be ensured once the restoration work improve the livelihood of local communities, increase incomes, keep rural communities vital, limit soil erosion, and protect livestock production.
