Abstract:Population growth (more as a result of immigration than because of high fertility rates per se), eroding land tenure rights, agricultural expansion, economic transformation, political insecurity and competition with other pastoralist groups over grazing resources are all interrelated problems directly affecting pastoralists in the late twentieth century. The author discusses these in more detail in the present paper, using examples from pastoral cases in Kenya involving Maasai, Samburu, Boran, and Rendille.
