Jutta Werner, Ali Nefzaoui, Kailene Jamel, Mounir Louhaichi. (1/12/2018). A new pastoral code for Tunisia: Reversing degradation across the country’s critical rangelands. Tunis, Tunisia: International Center for Agricultural Research in the Dry Areas (ICARDA).
In response to the severe economic, social, and environmental costs of degradation across Tunisia’s rangelands, the International Center for Agricultural Research in the Dry Areas (ICARDA) has worked with the General Directorate of Forestry (Direction Générale des Forêts, DGF) to draw up a new pastoral code. This code could facilitate a more sustainable governance regime that also delivers for pastoral communities. Inclusive and practical, the code also offers a framework for other countries experiencing degradation in rangeland areas.
