Mobilising Pastoralist Women In Turkana: Shifting perspectives on gender relations to adapt to climate change

Summary Paper

Pastoralist lifestyle requires marriage as one of the core components as a way to adapt to climate change, through accumulation of livestock through marriage as well as having children in order to help with the labour. Women’s roles in pastoral tends to limited to domestic roles, however this does not seem to be the case anymore with the increase in participation due to the ever changing and volatile environment. This research aims to investigate the livelihoods of pastoralists during extreme climate conditions and the role of women in these communities. Further, it seeks to understand the coping capacities of local communities who have suffered as a result of environmental and socio-cultural problems.
