Abstract

Laws, institutions, and economic policies play a large role in determining the sustainability of rangelands. They provide the basic framework from which many lasting decisions about rangeland management are made. The SRR has identified 10 primary indicators to assess how this framework influences the long-term health and productivity of rangeland in this country. The indicators within this criterion are broadly defined and examine the legal, institutional, and economic framework of rangeland conservation on a large scale. They can, therefore, be measured in multiple ways.
