Dr. Oliver Wasonga and Dr. Oscar Koech from the University of Nairobi (UoN), Department of Land Resource Management and Agricultural Technology (LARMAT)  on  participated in the stakeholder’s consultative forum for the National Rangelands and Pastoralism strategy being developed in Kenya. It took place from 26th -27th Feb 201at Bomen Hotel, Isiolo.

This process was initiated during the national rangeland policy dialogue held in 2016 that established that there are various policies relevant to Range Management, However, strategies to operationalize the policies were lacking. As a result, a workshop held in June 2017 produced the draft Rangeland Strategy of 2017 which highlights many issues and frameworks necessary for providing guidelines for sustainable interventions in the Rangelands.

It is hoped that the strategy will provide effective framework for strengthening institutions to come up with sustainable interventions, mitigation and adaptation measures. It was therefore necessary to subject this draft strategy to stakeholder consultation before being adopted. The forum objectives was to subject the Draft Rangelands strategy 2017 to multi-sector stakeholder engagement, consultation and inputs in order to generate an inclusive strategy document for adoption by a wide range of stakeholders at National, County and Community level. Present institutions were; County governments of Wajir, Marsabit, Isiolo, Garissa, West Pokot, Turkana, Mandera, Lamu, Taita Taveta, Tharaka Nithi, Makueni, Narok, Baringo, Laikipia
