Descriptive study design was used by the study. The target population for the study was 204 people who included all the conservancy rangers, Committee members, Chiefs, Religious leaders, Members of Parliament, Conservancy managers, County assembly and county administration. A formula was used to arrive at a sample size of 96. Quantitative data collected using closed ended questionnaires was used. Data analysis involved the use of descriptive and inferential analysis using SPSS version 20 software.
The study findings indicated a positive relationship between the predictor variables (conflict management, inclusive recruitment, deterrent patrols and cultural diversity appreciation) and conflict management. The relationship was significant apart from the relationship between cultural diversity and conflict management. The study concluded that conflict management training, inclusive recruitment and deterrent patrols are very important strategies which lead to an improvement in conflict management in Baragoi Sub County.
