Land Use and Land Cover Change (LULCC) is the most prominent cause of Soil Organic Carbon (SOC) variability in any landscape. Kenyan Arid and Semi-Arid Lands (ASALs) have been facing extensive land use/ cover changes in the last three decades prompting a review on the impacts it has on soil quality and consequently on land degradation. This study was carried out in 2016 in Olesharo Catchment, Narok County, one of the prominent ASALs of Kenya.

The Marsabit Forest Reserve (MFR), a green island in an arid environmental setting, generates multiple ecosystem goods and services (ES) to the local community critical for their livelihoods. The forest has been experiencing substantial land conversion for town expansion, agriculture production and settlements threatening long-term ES provision. Sustaining the forest ES under increasing anthropogenic pressures is one of the great challenges of the Marsabit forest community.

Sustainable management of the natural resources requires critical understanding of the dynamics of land use and land cover change (LULCC). Nguruman sub-catchment in the northern part of Kajiado County has experienced rapid land use and land cover changed over the past decades. However, the extent to which these changes have impacted on the ecosystem and indigenous livelihoods has not been assessed. This remains a critical challenge that must be addressed due to its potential severe impacts on rural human livelihoods especially in arid and semi-arid areas in Kenya.
