The purpose of this toolkit is to introduce the essential elements of participatory rangeland management to county government personnel and others who are supporting communities in their rangeland management efforts. It is meant to provide guidance on steps they may take with these communities.

Central to this toolkit is the idea that participatory rangeland management has four key aspects or dimensions referred to here as four “Legs”. Referring to each of the dimensions as “Legs” implies that rangeland management, like an animal that walks on four legs, must have all four legs healthy and strong if it is to be effective.

Each tool in the first and second edition can be individually downloaded (see below). The whole manual can also be downloaded in one document.

General tools The First Leg: establishment and governance of the rangeland unit The Second Leg: management of the rangeland unit The Third Leg: using a landscape approach The Fourth Leg: relations with government and customary institutions
