Abstract:

An index to measure the Vulnerability of Livestock Owners livelihood in the Vicinity of National Park was developed by adopting a systematic procedure. The scale values of the three dimensions Biophysical, social and institutional vulnerability were calculated and value was 6.28, 6.58 and 6.27 respectively. Out of 76 indicators under selected dimensions, 66 were retained for item analysis. Based on the rating of 31 judges on a three-point relevancy continuum, mean relevancy and overall mean relevancy scores were calculated. The statements having relevancy weightage (RW) > 0.85 and Mean Relevancy Score (MRS) greater than the Overall Mean Relevancy Score i.e., 2.60 were considered for inclusion in Livelihood Vulnerability Index (LVI). The final index contains 46 indicators.
