Protecting Open Rangelands

Keeping pastoral rangelands open is core to achieving our vision of a healthy and intact landscape for people and wildlife. In fact, it is the underpinning of all of our work. We use a range of tools in order to tackle securing and strengthening community rights to their land, including assigning communities create Land Use Plans and other appropriate methods of securing communal land and resources. We further assist communities to integrate their plans into existing and proposed national and county plans and support the creating of new management models such as community conservancies and pooling subdivided lands back into collective management units.
