This brief is the second in a series highlighting issues facing pastoralists and agropastoralists in two areas in Nigeria: Hayin Ade in Kaduna State and Wuro Alhaji Idrisa Bappate in Taraba State.

SPARC and its partner the Fulbe Development and Cultural Organization (FUDECO) want to improve understanding of the challenges that pastoralists and agropastoralists view as most critical in their own words, how these challenges impact their lives and livelihoods, what coping and adaptive strategies they currently employ and what additional assistance they would like in order to improve their futures.

This brief examines land tenure insecurity in two sites in Nigeria: Hayin Ade in Kaduna State and Wuro Alhaji Idrisa Bappate in Taraba State.  It is the second in a series highlighting issues facing pastoralists and agropastoralists in these two settlements. The first publication, Livelihoods, conflict and mediation: Nigeria, presents an overview of the research.

With each successive report, SPARC will highlight a different issue to add nuance to narratives around pastoral and agropastoral challenges from the perspectives of those living with such challenges, including critically interrogating those who present potentially over-simplified views on farmer–herder conflicts and underlying conflict drivers.
