Adaptive Strategies and Sustainable Livelihoods: Policy Issues - Kenya

By Naresh Singh, Perpetua Kalala on January 13, 2002
This document focuses on the policy aspects of the study for the Kenya case study. There are five such documents, one for each participating country. They serve the critical role of articulating the policy findings in relation to the mircro-level findings, a necessary factor in arriving at a full appreciation of adaptive strategies as a potential tool for the policy-assisted enhancement of sustainable livelihoods.

The studies were conducted at the same time and in a similar manner to those in four other Arican counties; Zimbabwe, Burkina Faso, South Africa and Ethiopia. For each study site, a community report, a policy document, and a synthesis document which distills the main links between the community and policy findings were prepared. The interested reader would certainly benefit from the breadth and depth of the various case studies.
