The subject of natural resources management and its relationship with peacebuilding and the role of women has received heightened attention in the last decade. Following the UN organizations survey of current global situation in 2013, organizations were encouraged to undertake specific studies in their regions. UN Women- Kenya and IPSTC focused on Turkana County.
The study has explored women participation in natural resources management (NRM) and peacebuilding (PB) as they seek to meet livelihoods for their families and communities. The position of women among the pastoralists has been well explored exposing their marginalization in land, livestock, pasture, resources governance and ownership. This situation also prevails in planning and implementation of PB activities.
