AbstractThe central aim of making better use and preventing deterioration of rangelands in developing countries depends primarily upon improving the management of these lands. This in turn calls for vastly increased investments in research and development. Significant progress has been made in creating a wider appreciation of the grazing resource, increasing technical competence, and improving knowledge of the resource. Less progress has been made in developing organizations competent to manage grazing lands. However, experience to date has clearly shown the importance and feasibility of more coordinated and comprehensive approaches to overcome this obstacle. As effective organizations are built, the opportunities and incentives for investment in range research and development should sharply increase.
