Description:

Coping with Drought: Responses of Herders and Livestock in Contrasting Savanna Environments in Southern Zimbabwe.

Summary / Notes:

This paper examines the contrasting responses to short- and long-term droughts shown by cattle populations in two different savanna ecosystems in a communal area in southern Zimbabwe. It illustrates how ecological responses are modified by differential management inputs-herding, transhumant movement, and supplementary feeding. The impacts of drought on cattle herds can thus be understood only with insight into this interaction of ecological and socio-economic factors. Such detailed study of drought response can most effectively inform development planning. Keywords: drought, livestock, Zimbabwe, savanna environments.
