Multiple land-use : the experience of the Ngorongoro conservation area, Tanzania

The Ngorongoro Conservation Area is widely recognised as one of Africa's longest-standing experiments in multiple land-use promoting both natural resource conservation and pastoral development in northern Tanzania. This book provides a case study of management in the Ngorongoro Conservation Area and details the background studies and planning processes used to develop a conservation and development strategy as well as a general management plan for the area. With the help of black and white photographs and numerous maps and graphic presentations, this work summarises some of the applied research studies available to managers and planners in the area and describes how this body of information has been used to establish a “designed future” for natural resources and economic and social conditions in the Nogorongoro Conservation Area.
