Collective Land Access Regimes in Pastoralist Societies: Lessons from East African Countries
In order to isolate the drivers and consequences of change, we focus on three types of collective land tenure regimes, namely un-adjudicated communal lands and two types of group ranches – those that are intact and those that have been subdivided. Based on this evidence, we analyse the changes in these land tenure regimes across four periods from the colonial era to post-independence, through the structural adjustment period to present day, and provide a discussion around the drivers and effects on pastoral communities and their livelihoods.
