Abstract:Evaluation of some of the development projects introduced among two pastoralist societies from Kenya, the Kaputiei Masai and the Samburu, both by the British colonial administration and by the Kenyan government, in the light of their outcome and success and in the context of the local economic strategies and social organization. The establishment of grazing schemes and group ranches among the pastoral Samburu and Kaputiei Masai for the period 1935-1975 is described and subsequently evaluated according to several aspects viz., the justification of government intervention and its primary aims and objectives, policies and measures in the elaboration and execution of development projects, ecological conditions and the viability of grazing schemes and group ranches, and the implications for the social and economic life of pastoral nomads and their response to development projects. Notes, refs., maps.
