Agro-pastoral communities face challenges due to land cover change. Land tenure, consequent land subdivision and expansion of settlements, cultivation and development has led to a shift of livelihood activities from the traditional livestock keeping and cultivation of crops to logging, charcoal trading, quarrying, sand harvesting and land encroachment by the growing population at 5.5% per annum. Minimal research has been conducted and documented on how land cover change at present influences the livelihood of agro-pastoralist.
