Abstract:Although the individual situations of pastoralists in Kenya vary widely as a result of their particular pastoral adaptations, physical environments and social histories, Kenyan pastoralists do share key problems and experience similar processes that affect their economic security and ability to maintain their mobile livestock economies. These problems include population growth and pressure on grazing resources; transformations of property rights from communal to private tenure; and political insecurity and the resurgence of warfare. These problems are discussed in this article, using examples from the Maasai, Samburu, Boran and Rendille pastoralists. Bibliogr.
