    In Laikipia the key dynamics centre on absentee land, much of this being land that was divvied out to Kikuyu by Kenyatta after independence. Much of this land (particularly north of the 600mm rainfall band) is not viable for cultivation. However, it was used by the Kikuyu title-holders as collateral to acquire loans with the Agricultural Development Corporation and others. Maasai, Samburu and Pokot herders have been grazing this land since the 1970s.

In this paper the authors aim to show how a fundamental misunderstanding of pastoral land management, and in particular pastoral tenure systems, has undermined traditional institutions and the environment for which they were once responsible.

    This article summaries an assessment of three community wildlife sancturaries in the Naibunga Conservancy in Laikipia - Koija, Tiemamut and Kijabe group ranches, with the objective of determining the reasons for the establishment of the CWSs, the role of partners and the perception of partners to the partnerships. It was found that communities in Kijabe and Koija were not contented with their partners and that they did not trust their partners. Further, despite previous research findings enumerating weaknesses in the sanctuaries, the same problems were identified in this study.
