Pollinators are important bio-indicators of ecosystem health and contribute to food security. This is according to Dr. Wanja Kinuthia, a Research Scientist from the National Museum of Kenya. While giving a public lecture on pollination, Dr. Wanja underscored the role of pollination, a key ecosystem service responsible for crop reproduction and livestock feed.

The pastoralist communities of Kenya’s drylands face marginalization due to drought, climate change, and its effect on natural resources. To help these communities escape the cycle of food insecurity and poverty, Colorado State University partnered with the University of Nairobi through Higher Education for Development to establish the Center for Sustainable Dryland Ecosystems and Societies (CSDES). The partnership is funded by the United States Agency for International Development.

GIVING HOPE TO YOUTHS IN DRYLANDS

Date and time:

Location / Venue: 

Isiolo

About two years ago, Mr. Abdi Ali Hassan was among many youths in the drylands of Kenya who faced a daunting future. Born 30 years ago to a pastoral family in Isiolo County, Mr. Abdi had to confront myriad challenges associated with the marginalized population. Some of these challenges included: acute unemployment; limited access to natural resources, financial hardship, and lack of skills and knowledge to transform economic circumstances.

UoN Students Hail Field Course Program

Date and time: 
Wed, 2013-11-06 13:09

Before attending a joint field course trip organized by the Centre for Sustainable Dryland Ecosystems and Societies (CSDES), Bernice Mereina Sainepo from Kajiado County lacked hands-on training in dryland ecosystem resource assessment. Like many of her classmates, she was not in a position to relate the lessons learnt in class to real issues on the ground.
