Impact of Darfur Conflict on Livestock Population in West Darfur State

Ali Ahmed Dawoud and Omer Ibrahim Ahmed Hamid

The impact of Darfur conflict on livestock population and ownership was conducted in two localities (Zalingei and Wadi Salih) in West Darfur State from August 2007 to March 2009. The objectives of the study were to find out the effects of the Darfur conflict on the livestock population in west Darfur state. The methods applied for data collection in this study were the participatory approaches (Participatory Rural Appraisal PRA and Rapid Rural Appraisal RRA) through which the questionnaire was developed. Two hundreds and fifteen questionnaires were distributed to one hundred and twenty one villages and Damras within eight administrative units of the two localities. Data collected from twenty seven tribes comprising the pastoralists, agro-pastoralists, sedentary herders and IDPs. The results showed that there was a reduction in livestock population from one and half million before the conflict to approximately one million heads of animals from different species.
