Addressing conflict between farmers and pastoralists
Presented By: Dr James Kahurananga
Event: Symposium on Best Practices in Sustainable Agriculture (2019-02-13)
Session: Decreasing agricultural land in Shinyanga and neighboring regions has forced a large number of pastoralists to migrate to southern Tanzania especially Morogoro region. This has led to increasing conflict between pastoralists and farmers particularly in Kilosa. Land use planning offers an opportunity for resolving such land use conflict.
