CASE STUDY Building resilience of women in an arid area through adaptable technology

Kenya Resilient Arid Lands Partnership for Integrated Development ( Kenya RAPID) programme is a five year program being implemented in five  Arid and Semi-Arid Lands (ASAL) counties of Kenya  namely: Garissa, Wajir, Marsabit, Isiolo and Turkana) to build resilience for the communities.

It strongly supports the Ending Drought Emergencies Common Program Framework launched by the Government of Kenya in November 2015, recognizing that “Sustainable management of rangelands, water, crops, and increasing the contribution of livestock to the pastoral economy are critical to resilient livelihoods in the Arid and Semi-Arid Lands (ASALs).” The objective of this case study is to bring out the benefits of adaptable technology in the ASAL that can gradually transform pastoralists into agro-pastoralists and build resilience within a community.
