International student summit (ISS) theme: Youth actions and innovations towards Climate change adaptation and mitigation to promote sustainable Agriculture in their communities.
Topic: Influence of climate change on farmer-herder conflict in Kilosa – Tanzania.
The presentation was about how youth are engaged in identifying trends and changes in weather patterns, how these changes influence farmer-herder conflict with regard to the location of the area and frequency of conflict occurrence over the Natural resources.
Since Climate change is the main driver of the conflict complexities then there is a need to come up with ways to adapt and mitigate these changes so as to reduce the rate of conflict occurance and hence accelerating the movement towards realization of the sustainable development goals.
The study is expected to provide data for the policy makers and actionable information to both farmers and herders.
