This kind of opposition to investments is very common across Africa, Asia and Latin America, often causing significant financial losses and operational headaches.

This map shows Drylands found in Rangelands (using global aridity classes) mapped against country boundaries providing approximate areas of Drylands found in rangelands per country. Aridity zones were derived from an Aridity Index (AI) which is calculated as the ratio of precipitation to potential evapotranspiration.

This map shows global ruminant production system that exists within rangelands. Selected classes are: LGY (Livestock-only systems in Hyper Arid areas), LGA (Livestock-only systems in arid areas), LGH (Livestock-only systems in humid areas) and LGT (Livestock-only systems in temperate areas or Tropical Highlands). The mapping of global ruminant production systems was undertaken by FAO and ILRI.

This map shows terristrial protected areas found within rangelands. The information on protected areas is taken from IUCN and UNEP-WCMC World Database on Protected Areas. The mapping of the rangelands is taken from rangeland types and boundaries previously mapped by University of Idaho and the Society for Rangeland Management (SRM). Country boundaries were taken from ESRI 2016.
