Communities living in rangelands largely depend on these ecosystems for everything including but not limited to water, fuel, grazing grounds for their livestock, construction materials, farming, tourism among others. However, climatic conditions characterized by long droughts, and floods as well as high population increase and associated anthropogenic impacts have negatively impacted the integrity of these ecosystem. A case in point is the rangelands around the Chyulu Hills in Kenya.
