Karamoja is a semi-arid region in the north-east of Uganda. 80% of the population depends on pastoralism and agriculture to provide for their needs. Prolonged droughts, environmental degradation and conflicts result in a decrease in livestock productivity and threaten the pastoral way of life. Livestock keepers then find themselves in a vulnerable situation. In response to these threats, livestock keepers and their herds travel around the country in search of water and grasslands.
