    This thesis examines water quality status and deterioration in the Upper-
    Athi-Nairobi sub-catchments which covers an area of 1154.4 km2 with an annual
    discharge rate of 99242 m3/year (9.9 X 104 m3/yr). It is based on field and
    laboratory analysis of water quality parameters.
    The subject matter includes the assessment of land use processes
    responsible for water quality deterioration. These include Industrial and
    Agricultural activities. The study demonstrates how useful industrial

    Effects of soils, vegetation and land use on infiltration
    rates and related soil physical properties of the semi-arid
    Sirima and Hukogodo catchments in Laikipia district were
    investigated. Representative six soils in Sirima and four
    soils in Hukogodo, surveyed at detailed level, were assessed.
    Within soil types, four site condition treatments with respect
    to vegetation cover and land use designated as Tr_ee/Bush _(TB),
    Open Grass (OG), Bare Ground (BG) and Cultivated Surface (CS)

    Organisation of the dairy industry and the marketing system in Kenya is highlighted and marketing and pricing of milk in Kenya is discussed. The formal and the informal milk marketing subsystems are also discussed. The Kenya Cooperative Creameries Limited (KCC) handles most of the marketed milk that is not sold and consumed in the rural areas. A major role of the KCC is to receive, process and distribute fresh milk (as pasteurised milk) on a daily basis.

    Studies were conducted among pastoralists on the Borana Plateau in 1986-89. Household surveys described seasonal milk production and allocation, marketed supply of dairy products, incidence of calf morbidity and mortality and human consumption of dairy products and grain. The efficiency of butter-making was measured. Dairying among the Borana is controlled by the women. Overall, 69 percent of milk produced was used as fresh milk and the remainder was soured for direct consumption or butter processing.

    Kenya

    The intent of this study was to examine the impact of
    changing land use patterns on the numbers and distribution
    of livestock and wild herbivores in the Tana River District,
    Kenya.
    A multi-method approach of aerial surveys,
    questionnaires, interviews and secondary data sources were
    employed to realize the objectives.
    Results indicate that changes in land use patterns and
    types have created conflicts that led to the reduction of
    the range and affected distribution of pastoral livestock
