African Alliance of Rangeland Management and Development

The African Alliance for Rangeland Management and Development (AARMD) is a continental movement of organizations in Africa, brought together to shape the opinions and advocate for effective policies that will protect rangelands in the light of climate change, drought, desertification and land degradation.

Membership is open to Non-governmental organizations, research institutions, Foundations, Trusts, Community-based organizations, faith-based networks, national coalitions and regional networks in Africa; AARMD aims to fuse efforts on climate change, drought, desertification and land degradation advocacy and coordination in Africa as it impacts rangelands, pastoralists and nomads.

In the pursuit of its mandate, AARMD collaborates and encourages strategic alliances with national governments, regional governmental bodies, international partner and individuals sharing its aspirations, to ensure that the African pastoralists and nomads' voice is intensified in international climate change, drought, and desertification and land degradation debates.

Our work feeds into the work of the conventions that combat desertification, climate change and disasters specifically as it impacts on the African arid, semi-arid and dry sub-humid areas where some of the most vulnerable ecosystems and peoples are.

Vision

Sustainable and productive African Rangelands.

Mission

To reinforce African community resilience through dialogue and adaption of technologies.
