1- Why Protected and Managed Grazing?

Many studies and projects showed that managed grazing might be more efficient than protection on the form of fenced grazing reserved, that were always trespassed. Alternatively, community based protection coupled with managed grazing would enhance local communities to protect their valuable grazing resources while achieving ecosystem sustainability and resilience.

2- Project implementer

The MoA/Directorate of Rangelands is responsible for the technical and managerial aspects of this project. 

3- Planned Activities

The planned activities of managed grazing project according to the agreements between MoEnv and MoA are summarized in the following Table.

4- Achieved Activities/Outputs

The implementer (MoA) started this activity since the launch of CAP. The community based protection was implemented in different locations in the northeastern Badia. Successful implementation was observed in Aranbeh, Oashaji and Al-Grain. These locations were prepared and supported with the interventions of fodder shrub plantation under contour ridges. Other locations, however, were suffering from low rainfall in the past years which resulted in no positive sign of native vegetation recovery.  The BRP is also planning with MoA to  carry out several sessions and training on managed grazing (e.g. rest rotational grazing) to local communities, following the stage of fodder shrub plantation.
