    This article suggests that communual rangeland management policies in Botswana and Zimbabwe are based on incorrect technical assumptions about the stability of semiarid rangelands, the nature of rangeland degradation, and the benefits of destocking. Consequently, inappropriate policies, stressing the need to destock and stabilise the rangelands, are pursued.Acknowledgement of the great instability but intrinsic resilience of rangeland would encourage the Governments to more favourable regard the opportunistic stocking strategies of the agro-pastoralists of the Communual Areas.

    Throughout Africa the importance of land use issues in relation to tsetse control planning has been emphasized consistently in the tsetse literature. Because of inappropriate land use, concerns for the environment in tsetse-freed areas have been expressed frequently. This debate is very relevant to Zimbabwe, where extensive tsetse control operations in recent years have confined the remaining area of tsetse infestation to parts of the Zambezi valley, a semi-arid region of the country with a fragile eco-system and limited agricultural potential.
