    In pastoral societies women face many challenges. Some describe these as a ‘double burden’ –
    that is, as pastoralists and as women. However, pastoral women may obtain a significant degree
    of protection from customary law even if customary institutions are male-dominated. In periods
    of change (economic, social, political), this protection may be lost, and without protection from
    statutory laws, women are in danger of “falling between two stools” (Adoko and Levine 2009). A

    In Tanzania, ongoing land insecurity is a structural cause of food insecurity particularly for
    pastoralists, agro-pastoralists and small-scale crop farmers leading to land use conflicts,
    compromised access to resources including grazing and water and rangeland degradation.
    Land tenure security and management can be improved through village land use planning (VLUP)
    and land certification – namely the issuing of certificates of customary rights of occupancy
    (CCROs). In situations where villages share resources such as grazing areas and water, joint village

    <p>Rangelands, like other natural resources are subject to many changes. In Iran, one of the changes is the land tenure reform, that may have significant effects on both the land and the land user. Land tenure changes not only affect the life of the present, but also that of next generations, and involves very complex decision making. This decision should lead to a sustainable use of the land and contribute to the livelihood of the present and future generations.

    Ill advised, uncoordinated, and badly planned interventions have been blamed for continuing poverty and food insecurity in rangelands. Water interventions in particular have had negative impacts. Not only have these interventions failed to improve the livelihoods of people living there, but in many cases they have served to undermine them and the environment on which they depend. Rangeland development interventions have been sectoral in their approach.

    In Cameroon, rangelands occupy about 20 % of surface area; provide critical habitat to many animal and

    plant species; offer many vital goods and services to society and are home to pastoralists, agropastoralists,

    crop farmers, fishermen and hunter-gatherers, who for centuries co-existed peacefully. In

    recent years this harmony is being threatened by changing land use patterns, poor land use planning and

    poor recognition of ownership rights. Despite efforts by state and non-state actors to improve pastoral
