Karamojongs are pastoralist who derive their livelihood from livestock keeping and normally have big herds of cattle yet the region continues to face a lot of conflicts due to raids which have often had implications on development and security.
In a two day training that commenced on 7th February 2023, the Karamoja Development Forum with technical support from the Karamoja Resilience Support Unit conducted a Pastoralism Course Training with 30 selected participants including Local Councilors, Kraal Leaders and some livestock traders in Nakapiripirit District.
The training aimed at deepening participants’ understanding of pastoralism with focus on gender, climate change and conflict.
Following this 2 day training will be another learning session and later participants will engage their communities to address conflict drivers through dialogue, involving youth and women.
