Conflict over natural resources: A short story

Our news story from West Africa looks at conflict between farmers and pastoralists. We hear some of the reasons why this type of conflict is intensifying in some areas, and a promising way to bring peace. Disputes among locals can also arise when there is competition for other natural resources, such as forests or water.

This week’s script uses fictional characters to examine some of the different responses people have to conflict over natural resources. The Notes to Broadcasters for this script suggests how a panel discussion can help further this discussion on responses to conflict.
