Abstract: "Donor agencies and African governments have implemented a variety of rangeland tenure instruments in efforts to achieve the objectives of increasing urban meat supplies, raising net exports of meat and live animals, conserving rangeland resources, and settling nomadic pastoralists. Rangeland tenure instruments are designed to achieve policy objectives through their effects on the behavior of individuals and groups of livestock owners. The consequences of those policy instruments depend upon livestock owners' strategies and the complex interactions between the instruments, the ecological system, and the social system. Prediction of the likely consequences of policy instruments requires an understanding of livestock owner strategies and those interactions. The goal of this paper is to contribute to that understanding."
