The Impact of Conflict on Wildlife and Food Security: The Case of Boma

Description: The community and household surveys of the communities in and around the Boma National Park have clearly shown apparent deterioration in the food security situation in terms of level of consumption, assets base, access to health, water and sanitation and education and kinship support as well. The traditional livelihood activities such as crops production and livestock rearing used to provide during pre-conflict period a healthy, secured and sustained livelihood for most communities even during minor ecological shocks such as drought or floods. Confronting the increasing internal conflict that has been exacerbated by ecological shocks, the communities are becoming more reliant on wildlife and environmentally related livelihoods activities such as hunting, fishing and wild food collection. The wildlife and environmentally related livelihood activities that used to contribute between 17% - 36% of the overall household livelihoods, contribute now as high as 57% of the overall livelihoods while the contribution of the traditional livelihood activities has substantially declined reaching as low as 7% among the pastoralist communities.
