  "description": "Livelihood  strategies  are  at  the  centre  of development.  However,  identification  of  the \nnumerous  factors  that  determine  the  abilities  of  rural  household\u2019s  choice  of  livelihood \nstrategies in Ethiopia has received little attention and there was no more study undertaken.\nThe  purpose  of  this  study was  to impact  of  environmental  degradation  on  agro  pastoral \nlivelihood strategies of Bena Tsemay communities of South Omo Zone SNNPR, Ethiopia. To \nachieve the objectives ,representatives data were collected from 150 sample household heads \nfrom three sample kebeles, which were selected using purposively sampling by considering \nagro-ecological conditions moreover, three FGD each group composed 8-12 from different\nindividuals and from different socio-economic status and age groups were also included in \nthe study. Key informant interview also made with DAs in the Woreda. The study revealed \nthat  the  main  source  of  income  in  the  study  area are livestock (1-35.5TLU) and rain  fed \nsubsistent agriculture (0-4500 ET birr), which adversely affected by unpredictable rainfall \n(67.1-193.3(mm)  drought  and  high temperature  (27.2-29.7\u00b0c).  To  adapt  this  climate \nvariability  agro-pastoralist  are  using adaptation  strategies  along  with  drought  and \ninconsistent rainfall variability. Moreover, the study also identified women, children, elderly, \nthe  poor  and  landless  were  the  most  vulnerable  to  the  livelihood  (livestock  and  crop \ncultivation)  and  climate  variability  effects  (drought  and  in  consistent  rainfall). A  research \nalso  suggest  that  increasing  of  agro-pastoral  with  integrated  adult  educationbuilding \ncapacity, introduction  of improved  breeds  of  livestock  and quality  and  quantity  of  forage \nproducts and livestock confined to stall how to use modern livestock rearing and disseminate \nagricultural technologies and inputs to the community, restoring the degraded environment, \ndiversifying source of income .Will contribute for sustainable livelihood strategy.",
