Dr. Randall Boone  -CSU

The study seeks to assess and explicitly define the risk thresholds of determinants of resilience in pastoral households in Kajiado County in southern Kenya. The specific objectives of the study are to:

1. Determine household herd (HHH) size dynamics over the past 30 years using herder knowledge based on recall

2. Identify current and track past herding itineraries using GPS units/GPS-enabled phones assigned to herdsmen of selected pastoral herds

3. Evaluate changes in land-use in the pastoral areas of southern Kenya using remote sensing and PGIS techniques
