The research on “the impact of nomadic pastoralism on community welfare” was carried out in
afgooye district,lower shabelle Region- somalia with major emphasis placed on finding out the
different activities of Nomadic Pastoralists, effects of various activities of nomadic pastoralists
on household welfare and the possible ways of improving the welfare of Nomadic Pastoralists in
the Afgooye district. Responses were sought through use of simple random sampling and
purposive sampling for the community members and agriculture stakeholders in the district
respectively. Both closed and open ended questionnaires were given to a cross section of
respondents to aid and facilitate comprehensive data collection. The activities of Nomadic
Pastoralists include; animal remedies, milk production or consumption, meat production,
mobility, construction of underground water reservoir and animal fencing. The research findings
discovered that the most effective parameters are income to the household, health for both
human and herds and education level to the nomads. The study asked the respondents the best
way how drought problems can be curtailed, 53.3% of the people said that construction of
underground water reservoir (Berkado) is the best way to manage drought, while 42.2% agreed that digging bore holes can be a considerable strategy, and 4.4% of respondents voted for
livestock banking. A common failure of past rangeland development projects in Somalia was the focus on single issues and interventions in isolation, such as addressing animal health problems with veterinary services, or addressing the under-provision of education and health services with mobile schools and clinics.
