    Few regions present bigger development challenges than the African drylands – home to nearly 300 million people, and the vast majority of Africa’s poor. Food security and rural welfare in these areas are limited by a range of factors, biophysical, socio-economic and policy-related. And many of the biggest challenges – poverty, drought, land degradation, food insecurity – will be exacerbated by climate change.

    This issue of Caravan describes the new program, and some of the research innovations it will build on. The issue begins with two ‘opinion pieces’ by scientists from partner organizations in the CRP. They share lessons learnt from past successes (and failures), and ideas that could be applied to dryland

    Wildlife is one of Kenya’s greatest natural resource and is the foundation upon which nature-based tourism is based. However, it is one resource that is in constant danger of extinction as burgeoning populations and animals fight for limited space In addition, poaching has greatly reduced wildlife populations in the absence of adequate policies to manage consumptive utilisation that would generate benefits for communities living with wildlife.

    The effects of conceptual land cover change scenarios on the generation of storm runoffs were evaluated in the Nyando Basin. The spatial scenarios represented alternatives that vary between full deforestation and reforestation. Synthetic storm events of depths 40, 60 and 80mm were formulated according to the rainfall patterns and assumed to have durations corresponding to the runoff times of concentration.

    A study was conducted in dry and wet season to determine macro and micro mineral status of
    growing sheep and goats in arid rangelands of northern Kenya. Forty four, 22 each of sheep and goats (1-2
    year old), randomly purchased from three herds/flocks in study area, were sacrificed for whole liver and 12th
    right and left ribs. Homogenized liver samples pooled from all the lobes and defatted bone ash from whole
    left and right 12th ribs were used for determination of Ca, P, Mg, Cu, Fe, Zn and Mn status. Liver mineral

    The ability of an organization to implement strategy successfully is important. While it is
    the desire of every organisation to keep abreast with changing times and demands in the
    environment, it is accepted that having strategic plans on paper and donor conferences is
    very different from the on-ground implementation exercise To identify the challenges of
    strategy implementation, a case study of Indigenous Information Network was conducted.
    The study aimed to answer two research questions: what were the challenges of strategy

    study to characterize existing adaptive strategies and shifts in smallholder agro-pastoralists in relation to changes in land use and land subdivisions was carried out. A total of 48.9% of respondent indicated that there had been a shift in the adaptive strategies where unreliable rainfall, better access to land and water, acquisition of skills, shortage of pastures and proximity to wildlife habitats were the main factors influencing the shifts.

    This study conducts an academic and practical surgery of the problem of land rights
    administration in the pre-colonial, colonial, independent and modern Kenya. At the core of the
    statement of the problem of the study lie issues of land tenure and sanctity of land titles in
    Kenya. Amazingly, the issues that form the nuclei of the “Land Question” in Kenya are closely
    intertwined with the socio-economic and political climate prevailing in the country. Hence, the
    study confronts the problem from the policy, legal-constitutional and institutional dimensions.

    A study was undertaken along land use gradients in Taita-Taveta district, southeast Kenya to evaluate the occurrence of arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi (AMF) in seven land use types (LUT). The gradient was from indigenous forest (IF) to croplands with coffee (CO), maize (MA), horticulture (HT), napier (NA) and planted forest (PF). A total of 12 AMF morphotypes comprising of 4 Glomus, 1 Claroideoglomus, 5 Acaulosporaceae, 1 Racocetra sp. and 1 Gigaspora were isolated from the study site. Occurrnace of
