Blurb/Shorttext:
Mandera District of North Eastern, Kenya, is one of the ASAL districts which experience frequent drought. Efforts to mitigate the impact of drought from both government and donor agencies have had little impacts. The impacts of drought are devastating. This book explores the existing drought coping strategies; both formal and informal drought coping mechanisms practiced in the district and the role of stakeholders in the management of drought. The author recommends the integration of formal and informal coping strategies and the involvement of all stakeholders especially the community affected by drought. The book is highly recommended for policy makers and development agencies and donors seeking to reduce the impacts of drought on affected communities. Students, researchers and government officers working in drought prone areas will find this book extremely resourceful.
