Problems facing nomadic pastoralism

Problems facing nomadic pastoralism

Nomadic pastoralism involves constant or seasonal movement or migration of nomads and their livestock (cattle, goats, sheep, donkeys, and camels) from one place to another in search of green pastures and water

The following are problems facing nomadic pastoralism

  • Extensive drought cause water shortages and lack of pastures leading to death of livestock
  • wild animals may attack nomads and their livestock
  • lack of proper shelters expose the pastoralists to the hazards of bad weather such as rainstorm
  • pest and diseases affect the earth of animals lowering their productivity or causing death

  • overstocking leads to overgrazing and consequent land degradation and soil erosion
  • cattle rustling leads to loss of livestock and endanger the lives of the nomads
  • floods may destroy pastures for nomads
