Reconciling interests among wildlife, livestock and people in eastern Africa: A sustainable livelihoods approach

Briefing/policy paper

Briefing/policy paper

From the perspective of local livelihoods this paper explores the complex interactions between wildlife, livestock and people, and options for integrated wildlife and livestock management in the semi-arid rangelands of eastern Africa. The paper draws on the sustainable livelihoods approach which explicitly considers whether households have access to the assets required to engage in an activity, and how that activity ‘fits’ with existing livelihood activities.
