This was a great step towards implementation of the Participatory Rangelands Management (PRM) Project in strengthening the grazing land management institutions for proper governance of the rangelands for improved food security and livelihoods. The legal status of the Livestock associations is facilitating smooth implementation of the Community Rangelands Investment Funds (CRIF) with respect to approved Grazing land Management Plans. This success was due to strong partnership between Tanzania Natural Resource Forum (TNRF) and its partners: KINNAPA, Ministry of Livestock, and Kiteto District Council, National Land use Planning Commission (NLUPC), Sokoine University of Agriculture, International Livestock Research Institute (ILRI) among others, funded by EU through International Land Coalition with technical guidance from International Livestock Research Institute in the four clusters OLENGAPA, KIMBO, ALLOLE and NAPALAI).
