    Asia and the Pacific, for the purposes of this book, encompasses a vast territory extending from Mongolia in the north to New Zealand in the south; from the Cook Islands in the east to Kuwait in the west (Map 1). The environmental diversity of Asia and the Pacific is therefore vast, and is contrasted by the region’s coldest and hottest deserts, verdant tropical rainforests, extensive steppe, desert steppe, grassland and rangelands, mountains and plains.

    Jordanie, Asie occidentale

    The Badia constitutes about 90% of the total land area of Jordan, which is 89 342 km2. Its average annual rainfall is < 200 mm. The area with annual rainfall of 100–200 mm is considered the promising rangeland for rehabilitation. The Badia (part of the rangeland) supplies the livestock sector with about 20% of forage needs, while all the other sources provide the sector with only about 5% of forage.

    Kenya

    Rangelands in semi-arid Kenya have recently witnessed extensive land use changes. These changes can mainly be attributed to increased livestock populations and the response of the increased human population to both local and exogenous opportunities and constraints. This study was carried out in Kibwezi district of Kenya mainly inhabited by agro-pastoralists. The main objective of this study was to establish how different land use types influence soil properties in tropical semi-arid rangelands.

    Kenya

    The impact of land use and cover change on soil quality and pasture production was investigated in the rangelands of Nakasongola District, Uganda. Landsat (TM) images of 1986 and 1990 and Landsat (ETM+) of 2000 and 2004 for Nakasongola District were used to determine the extent and patterns of land use and cover change using the Integrated Land and Water Information Systems (ILWIS) 3.6 software.

    Kenya

    Climate change impacts livelihoods adversely in dry-lands of Northern Kenya in terms of longer and harsher droughts, shorter and intense precipitation and floods. Climate change interlocks with peoples life-worlds differently for different reasons. Understanding the foregoing can inform and make policy more relevant. What are the Samburu peoples discernment of climate change and how have they confronted it? The paper examines the Samburu perspectives of climate change and the resulting coping, adaptation mechanisms and practice, and their prospects.
