After the atrocities of two world wars and the end of the so-called Cold War, many hoped that the cessation of the East-West conflict would herald the beginning of a new era of security – but those remaining hopes were shattered no later than the terrorist attacks of 9/11.

Series of county level trainings on land laws and their applications in the area of food security and DRR have been done in the recent past by KAS and other partners targeting the government and non-governmental actors in the two counties.

On a different note, community training approach is becoming more useful in connecting lobbying and advocacy efforts at the county level with practical evidences at the community level.
