Kenyan pastoralists fight for a future adapted to climate change (commentary

Pastoralism provides much of the milk and protein consumed in Kenya, but it faces a perilous future especially from climate change but also a lack of infrastructure and land rights. Recent droughts have exacerbated the challenges, leading to conflict between pastoralist communities struggling to find enough forage and water for livestock. Fresh ideas and new programs are arising to help ease the situation in areas of northern Kenya, from where this dispatch originates.

        Pastoralist work so hard but get so little, I agree that the government should intervene and give aid to this pastoralist by giving them some value addition for their products.

          For their relentless efforts to conserve Kenya's savanna, Pastoralists need government support in terms of infrastructure, climate resiliency tools and legal land protections.I believe this will see them do more and more.

            I also accede with those who says the government should intervene, Pastoralism brings allot of positive impact in our country. They should not face those perilous threats!

              Pastoralism faces perilous threats today from climate change, population growth, land pressures, and tribal conflicts. Warmer temperatures and more extreme droughts are increasing the number of livestock raids among tribes across the region.

                The government should intervene on this especially when it comes to the land rights and also the infrastructure .Pastoralists play a great role in ensuring that their livestock do get green pasture and water ,therefore ,providing milk and protein to the best part of the world .Hope that the new ideas and programs will be formulated as early as possible
