Cattle herding in the North West Region of Cameroon is not sustainable in its present form. Although the role played by the cattle herding enterprise in the region is fundamental to the livelihood of cattle herders, consumers, the region, and others who depend on its products and services for survival; its sustainability unfortunately is not guaranteed due to several challenges. The repercussions of a breakdown of the enterprise on its dependents now and in the future can be very undesirable. This study was conducted to determine the sustainability of cattle herding in the region, in terms of its economic, social, and environmental components, and to develop strategies to assist stakeholders that were to reverse the trend of the impact.
Key words: Cattle herding, sustainability assessment, Cameroon.
