Women of the Laisamis Manyata village in Marsabit county in Kenya discuss climate variability, community vulnerability, and adaptation mechanisms in their community during an assessment exercise in the Northern Kenya Rangelands in 2018.
This photo was captured in Biliqo-Bulesa Community of Isiolo County in Kenya during a field assessment of community vulnerability and adaptation to climate variability in 2018. The Acacia tree under which they shelter at peak sun hours drop highly nutritious seed pods that the animals eat before they embark on grazing in the late afternoon or evening when the sun goes down.
Men of Merille Manyata village in Marsabit County in Kenya map their community resources as they discuss Climate variability, community vulnerability, its impact and adaptation mechanisms in their Melako community Conservancy during an assessment exercise in the Northern Kenya Rangelands in 2018.

Repairing and restoring the dry rangelands in Kenya is key to helping insulate these precious ecosystems from the worst effects of climate change.
Reducing the cost of doing it is a huge bonus!

Development of the new Kalobeyei Refugee Settlement near Kakuma Camp in Turkana County An aerial view of a section of Kakuma Refugee Camp. Kenya is home to 500,000 refugees, the majority fleeing conflict in Somalia and South Sudan. Kenya hosts the second largest refugee population in Africa, after Ethiopia. In Kenya, refugees live in two camps—Kakuma and Dadaab—with restricted movement and are not allowed to work outside the camps. Dadaab and Kakuma are located in the remote, arid regions of northern Kenya. USAID, through the Office of Food for Peace (FFP) provides in-kind food assistance to the World Food Program (WFP) and the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) for distribution in the camps. Refugees receive a general food ration, which consists of cereals, pulses, vegetable oil, salt and a nutrient-enriched flour. Rations are distributed by World Vision, WFP’s food distribution partner. Almost all refugees rely solely on WFP’s food for survival. In FY 16, FFP contributed $30.5 million to WFP and UNICEF ($1.5 million) for in-kind food and nutrition assistance to the refugee program. Due to the congestion of the Kakuma refugee camp, an additional camp known as the Kalobeyei Integrated Refugee Settlement, was being developed approximately 25km north of Kakuma. The plan for Kalobeyei was that it was not to be another refugee camp, but a settlement that was to encourage integration between the refugees and host communities for the mutual economic benefit of both groups.
