In smallholder crop-livestock and agro-pastoral and pastoral livestock systems, livestock are one of a limited number of broad-based options to increase incomes and sustain the livelihoods of an estimated one billion people1. Climate variability has lead to massive crop failure, livestock mortality and loss of livelihoods for many rural households in semi-arid regions in the Kenya. But there are major gaps in our knowledge of the localised impacts which seriously inhibits current pro-poor targeting of adaptation strategies.
