While pastoralism can generates wealth and economic interdependence between farmers and cattle herders, it can also causes tension and conflicts. In the current Central African Republic crisis context, transnational livestock migrations, particularly by Chadian and Sudanese herdsmen to CAR, have led to clashes between pastoralists and the local population.
IPIS has developed a map showing the main pastoralism corridors as well as incidents related to pastoralism from 2012 till 2017. This map is part of a wider project of conflict mapping in the Central African Republic, sponsored by the U.S. Department of State.
