Determinants of the restriction of pastoral areas in Senegal


In this article, we identify and analyse the determinants of the restriction of pastoral areas in Senegal. The analysis is based on an econometric approach with the Vector Autoregressive (VAR) model as the estimation technique. The estimation period is from 1990 to 2015. It is estimated that population growth, expansion of cultivation areas and temperature increases are leading to a decrease in pastoral areas, while increases in forest areas and rainfall can contribute to the expansion of pastoralareas in Senegal.
