The overall objective of this project is to contribute to reduction of human-wildlife conflicts and improve community livelihoods in the Tsavo West buffer zone. The project aims to build the capacity of Taveta District communities to adopt sustainable coping strategies that were identified in an earlier study. These strategies include water harvesting techniques, appropriate dryland cropping systems, and intensification and income-generating enterprises (e.g., Apiculture and ostrich farming).

Yatta Constituency is one of the six constituencies that constitute the expansive Machakos County. It is located in the Arid and semi- arid (ASAL) regions of Kenya and receives erratic rains of less than 500mm annually. The temperatures range from 10oC to 28oC. The altitude of Yatta ranges between 700-800 meters above sea level befitting the bill for a hot tropical climate where evaporation exceeds rainfall. Inspite of the tough climatic conditions, the constituency plays host to approximately 148,000 people.
