    This study evaluates the potential effects of changes in climate, population and land cover on the
    quantity of surface water and groundwater resources in Lake Nakuru and Lake Elmenteita areas.
    Multiple linear regression analysis of the variables was done using Statistical Package for Social
    Sciences (SPSS) to achieve this objective. Population grows in the area at the rate of 3.4% to
    4.5% while natural vegetation cover is diminishing at 2.5% annually. There is constant rise in

    A study was conducted of about 8000 ha around Timau area
    in Meru District to evaluate its land suitability for
    agriculture. A semi detailed soil survey was carried out to
    classify and map the different soil units. Based on the
    relevant land qualities of each Soil Unit and physiography
    they were seperated in 15 Soil Mapping Units for the various
    Land Utilization Types with land use recommendations given.
    The following land qualities were rated and used to assess the
    suitability of each Soil Mapping Unit: soil water retention,

    Coastal Kenya is a food deficit area producing only 20 percent of its
    food requirement and is referred to as a net importer of food.
    However, technologies that can improve food production in the area
    exist and continue being developed. These technologies include:
    deep tillage, timely planting, use of green manure, animal manure •
    and fertilizer application.
    Social capital refers to the various social relationships and networks
    and the resources that become available thereof. Adoption has to do

    There is correlation on land degradation in reference to environment conflict against natural
    resources undocumented. Environmental conflicts mostly depend over human needs and issues
    such as distribution, allocation and natural resources management. History documents show how
    resource-based conflicts had contributed to highly destructive wars at Karamoja and Kagera
    regions of Uganda, Darfur in Sudan, in Rwanda genocide and even in the Niger Delta. Mau
    Forest Complex is Kenya’s important water tower. Important rivers that deplete in to Lake

    Land degradation is caused by removal of vegetation cover and subsequent fertility loss. Frequent
    assessment of land use changes and their effects on soil and vegetation in ranches is critical to their
    conservation. This study, carried out in four selected ranches in Kibwezi District is important because
    previous studies in the area have mainly dwelt on soil erosion and no research has been done on
    effects of land use changes on soil quality in terms of organic carbon, total nitrogen and vegetation

    The influence of soil, climate, and land use on soil water balance was investigated in 3
    agroclimatic zones within the Upper Ewaso Ng'iro Basin. Water balance was quantified
    for various land uses and management systems in each zone. These were natural forest (NF),
    grazing land (GL) and potato cropland (PC) on a mollic Andosol at Karuri; conventional
    tillage (CT), mulch tillage (MT), overgrazing (OG) and controlled grazing (CG) on a ferric
    Luvisol at Kalalu; and perennial grass (PO), enclosed perennial grass (PE), bare ground

    Geothermal Energy is a natural form of energy stored deep in the earth's hot rocks and
    waters within the fractured rocks. It is fairly widespread in the world mostly within
    continental plate margins. It has been put into use for several centuries but commercially;
    the world's first geothermal power plant was built at Larderello Italy in 1901 and is still
    generating. In Africa, Kenya is the first country to utilize this technology for power
    generation in the Rift Valley at Olkaria Naivasha. The geothermal energy potential in

    The impact of land use and cover change on soil quality and pasture production was investigated in the rangelands of Nakasongola District, Uganda. Landsat (TM) images of 1986 and 1990 and Landsat (ETM+) of 2000 and 2004 for Nakasongola District were used to determine the extent and patterns of land use and cover change using the Integrated Land and Water Information Systems (ILWIS) 3.6 software.

    Local Authority
    The section of Githurai west of the highway falls under the
    jurisdiction of the Nairobi City Commission. The rest, which
    is east of the highway falls under the jurisdiction of the
    Kiambu County Council.
    Ownership and Acquisition
    Until 1967 the land belonged to a dairy farmer. His workers
    had set up a co~operative with the intention of buying off
    the farm from him. They formed a compa~y called Githurai
    Thinganga. The land they bought consisted of three plots,
