A synthesis of two case studies where wildlife, tourism and pastoralism interact in Kenya. Final Technical Report for project R7150.

Abstract

This document represents the final report of project R7150 \"A synthesis of two case studies where wildlife, tourism and pastoralism interact in Kenya\". The report describes project activities and outputs, including an analysis of the impact of wildlife conservation initiatives on the livelihoods of a range of stakeholder groups. The research activities included: brief literature reviews; action research in the case study locations including semi-structured interviews of key informants, local people, members of organised groups, local government and NGO employees; field observation; and seminars. The sustainable rural livelihoods framework was used to describe and categorise local people and as a way of structuring the analysis.

The research found that the wildlife conservation interventions in the case study locations had neither strengthened livelihoods of the local pastoralists, agro-pastoralists and farmers, nor significantly conserved wildlife.
