Healthy Ecosystems for Rangeland Development (HERD)


Healthy Ecosystems for Rangeland Development (HERD): CEDARE, with the Desert Research Centre (DRC), the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN), and the United Nations Environment Programme(UNEP), implemented a Global Environment Facility (GEF)-funded project (2018-2022) titled “Healthy Ecosystems for Rangeland Development (HERD)” in Matrouh, which aimed at promoting of rangeland rehabilitation and sustainable management operations in Egypt and Jordan, by providing ecosystem services and biodiversity protection. The project addressed the rural and pastoralism community in Matrouh, where coordination had been closely maintained with the relevant activities of HERD, specifically those related to the improvement of the communities’ economic conditions, development of water resources, croplands, and fruit trees productivity, and economic analysis of different sources of income.

Throughout the project duration, regional capacity-building workshops on Rangeland monitoring systems were conducted in parallel with identifying the policies for sustainable rangeland management and restoration. Improve rangeland governance spanning about 500,000 hectares. Scale up good sustainable rangeland management (SRM) practices regionally and globally with the help of local government agencies, local farmers, and pastoralists.
