This chapter has the following objectives: (1) it places the decision making and livelihood strategies of people who live on the west side of Serengeti National Park within a conceptual framework of adaptation and vulnerability; (2) it looks at livelihood strategies of those people who live on the west side of Serengeti National Park; (3) it uses a household, individual-based model to address scenarios of change that may affect household livelihoods; and (4) it addresses the model implications for human vulnerability and resilience. The scenarios chosen include one of increasing climate variability, through changes in average annual precipitation and changes in variability of precipitation; and one that addresses the change in market prices for maize and for bushmeat.

Keywords:   livelihood strategies, Serengeti National Park, household livelihoods, human vulnerability, resilience, climate variability, market prices, maize, bushmeat
