ABSTRACT

This study was conducted with the main objective of assessing pastoralist perceptions on factors affecting rangeland productivity. The study would hope to contribute to policy makers, planners and natural resource managers and may serve the district resource managers and anyone who intends to conduct a study in the similar theme. The data for this study were emanated from both primary and secondary sources. Qualitative data is analyzed by discussion of the ideas, opinion and concepts of collected data and quantitative data is analyzed using SPSS software and Microsoft Excel program to present the results in the form of charts, graphs, percentages and tables. Non parametric statistics such as binomial test and chi-square test for goodness of fit were also part of the analysis. This research has showed that the main factors affecting rangeland productivity in study area are bush encroachment, recurrent drought, rangeland degradation, overgrazing, erratic rainfall and expansion of crop cultivation. These factors have considerable impacts on the productivity of rangelands and livelihoods of pastoralist. The problems affecting the productivity of rangeland should explicitly be regarded as community and societal problems and not simply the only concern of pastoralist.
