von Edwin Adoga Ottichilo

Cross border conflict as a factor to food safety / security
Cross border conflict has in many instances acted as one of the main impediments to food security especially among the warrying communities. In Turkana County and in particular along the border with West Pokot County, two communities that are both pastoralists with historic conflict and clashes over animals, pasture and which have experienced a protracted violent conflict are yet to find a common ground to co-exist peacefully. This problem continues to manifest in different forms amid multi-stakeholder’s approach that has tried to provide multi-faceted solutions.

Netzwerktreffen mit politischen Parteien

Politische Parteien in Kenia gelten als unideologisch, austauschbar und nur an Partikularinteressen interessiert. Folgerichtig verfügt die KAS in Kenia heute über keine Partnerpartei. Parteien sind aber trotz allem zentrale politische Akteure, an welchen eine politische Stiftung in ihrer Arbeit nicht vorbeikommt. Daher lud die KAS, auf Grundlage einer Studie des Parteiensystems, die drei Parteien, die am geeignetsten für eine engere Zusammenarbeit wirkten, zu einem zweitägigen Retreat an den Naivasha-See.
