Abstract: "The objective of this study is to understand the extent of individualization and privatization of rangeland tenure in Uganda, and its impacts on adoption of livestock technologies and rangeland management investments, land disputes and livestock profitability among the pastoralists of southwestern Uganda. This study is based on data collected by Kisamba Mugerwa (1995) on rangeland management by pastoralist households in the southwestern and northeastern parts of the 'cattle corridor' of Uganda. "The paper is organized as follows. Section 2 provides an overview of rangeland management in Uganda. Section 3 sets forth the methodology used in undertaking the study including description of the study area, key hypotheses and the econometric approach and diagnostic tests used, and sampling procedure and data description. Section 4 discusses the descriptive and econometric results of the study and section 5 provides conclusions and policy implications."
