LWF held its 24th Annual General Meeting on the 10th of October 2015 with over 170 registered members attending the function that was held at the Nanyuki Sports Club. This year’s AGM focused on 2 overwhelming issues currently affecting Laikipia County and its residents – that of rangelands and the conflicts that arise over access to grass by people and livestock, and water conservation and management.
Members were invited to listen and ask questions about efforts driven by LWF to address rangelands and holistic management as a tool in rangelands management, and, eventual peace and security. A summary of these efforts were presented by LWF’s Rangelands Outreach Team during the AGM proceedings, while a poster exhibition during the Forum’s open day summarised 2015 achievements in each Unit.
LWF has more than 7 years experience in holistic management as a tool in rangelands management. Because of the key role that Laikipia plays in the greater Ewaso landscape livestock production system, it was important to review achievements and lessons learned. (download the full presentation here).
