The research initiative Land, Livestock and Livelihoods in Drylands (Triple L) recently had a workshop in Kitale, Kenya. Different actors presented work and research relevant to the expert group’s area of focus. The event spawned fruitful discussions on topics for future research and opportunities surrounding the Mt. Elgon Livelihood project.
The workshop had around 45 participants for the first half and around 25 for the second. The participants were welcomed by Ms. Elizabeth Mwiyeria, the Country (Kenya) Director of the Swedish NGO Vi Agroforestry, followed by presentations from the County Government of West Pokot by agricultural director Ms. Koskei from the International Livestock Research Institute (ILRI). The presentation focuses on ILRI’s work with animal health and was succeeded by a presentation by FAO’s Land program in Kenya on their work with land tenure and governance.
