The concept of Al Hima

Al Hima is a traditional rangeland management system, which has been established in the Arabian Peninsula region by tribal peoples. They depended on sustainable land use patterns that would assure long-term survival in the face of scarce resources, particularly water. The term ‘Al Hima’ means protected area or protected place. HIMA is also used as an abbreviation for Human Integrated Management Approach, which emphasises the role of human activities within this nature conservation system.
