I wrote this paper in an attempt to dispel some of the confusion surrounding the application of the range degradation concept in Botswana.

To accomplish this I pursued three objectives. First, to present the current thinking of range ecologists vis-a-vis range degradation. between range degradation and communal land ownership as proposed by Hardin (), is an important determinant of the Government of Botswana’s livestock development policies (DevittWhiteMannathoko ).

It has three objectives. First, to present the current thinking of range ecologists vis-a-vis range degradation. Second, to dismiss recent arguments that range degradation in Botswana is insignificant. Third, to present an argument linking the livestock industry to ecosystem level Range degradation in Botswana book of the Kalahari.

Following an outline of the concept of rangeland degradation, the role of natural resources in macroeconomic and rural development and that of rangelands in particular is dealt with. Evidence on the extent, causes and effects of rangeland degradation is by: 8. land degradation: A case study of Botswana’s Kalahari Retreat of grass cover and perennial grasses, together with bush encroachment, are the major forms of land degradation experienced across all of the main land uses.

In some areas in the south west of the study area, degradation is recognised in the form of reactivation of sand dunes. Our study explicitly assesses the links between land use and degradation in the Kalahari across the southern portion of Kgalagadi District, Botswana (Fig.

vegetation productivity Cannot always be quantified With satellite imagery. The livestock sector is one of the major industries in Botswana. Cattle outnumber people two to one (Ntsabane 2(01).

Grazing and watering these large herds of cattle are major land-use activities. The consequences of these land-use activities are overgrazing, range degradation, competition. In terms of desertification, Botswana is one of the most seriously affected countries in the Kalahari Region of Southern Africa.

Problems include overstocking, large-scale vegetation depletion and changes, especially around water points, and accelerated soil erosion by wind, sheetwash and gullying. Part of the desertification problem is natural in such a semi-arid and drought-prone environment.

In Botswana, cattle are sold through a range of marketing outlets, including the BMC which holds the monopoly of beef exports (%), local butcheries (%), traders (7%), auction (%), or other farmers (%) (Arntzen, ).

Data from Botswana suggests that neither of these is singularly appropriate in the savanna woodland zone of southern Africa.
