Laikipia practitioners lead the way! Matthew Chana of LWF and Peter Lalampa of the Grevy’s Zebra Trust were active participants in a recent international dialogue conference in Kabarnet, Baringo County. They gave theoretical and practical demonstrations on land use, rangelands management, and holistic management to conference participants based on their work in Laikipia and NRT conservancies.
Land is an important and highly contested resource within Baringo County. The rehabilitation of degraded lands offers an immense opportunity for improving food security, water security and employment in the North Rift region of Kenya. At the same time, building trust between communities as well as between various land users is critical in ensuring long-term sustainability and peace within the region.
These issues were featured at the International Dialogue on Land and Security, held at the Rift Valley Hills Resort, Kabarnet, Baringo County. Approximately 100 local and international experts and participants attended this dialogue, and presented the latest debates on land, food, water, climate and human security..
