Abstract: Samburu District in Kenya is predominantly semi-arid and characterised by erratic, unreliable rainfalls and frequent droughts. Ninety-eight percent of the households practice traditional pastoralism, raising goats and some sheep and cattle for their livelihood. Livestock and related economic activities generate most of the revenues for the local council. SNV in partnership with Samburu Integrated Development programme (SIDEP), a local NGO, and Samburu County Council explored establishing interior, primary markets with the aim of increasing income for the producers and, thereby, the county council, without compromising the quality of the produce. This report discusses outcomes and lessons learned.
