This study investigates the role of environmental scarcity and the resulting changes in land-use patterns, as well as social factors in igniting or intensifying the pasture conflict in Wardak Province of Afghanistan. A recurrent, century-old conflict between Hazara (the settled community in close proximity to pastures) and the Kuchi (herders) occurs over access to summer-time pastures in central highlands of Afghanistan.
