MetadataShow full item record
This on-going study is assessing and modeling vulnerability and risks faced by pastoral communities in the dry areas of Lakipia in Kenya. Preliminary results from participatory rural appraisal indicate that poverty is widespread and the area suffers from frequent drought, water shortage, shortage of pasture, livestock diseases and predation and animal human conflicts. More indepth analysis and modeling are still to be done.
