Abstract: Rangeland degradation results in declining functional capacity, increased poverty, and food insecurity. Major changes in rangeland surface morphology and soil characteristics have a drastic effect on the primary productivity of the rangeland ecosystem and, in turn, on livestock production. This suggests a need for interventions to halt land degradation and improve the functional capacity of communal rangelands. A study was conducted to evaluate ways to improve the current status of the degraded rangeland. The study was carried out at the Amakuze Tribal Authority.
