The contribution of the rural economy to the development of the County is not well documented. By increasing understanding of its strengths and weaknesses, opportunities for the County Government to harness and maximise its potential to achieve the desired future for Laikipia can be identified.
In our effort to increase understanding of the need for and the value of wildlife and a healthy natural environment, the Wildlife Conservation & Management Programme is conducting awareness raising campaigns among the people of Laikipia. The main aim of this activity is to raise awareness of the local communities about the need to conserve wildlife and the environment. So far we have been able to do an awareness raising meeting to reach out to the people of Debatas in central Laikipia, a small shopping centre bordering the Olpejeta Conservancy. This was conducted on 7th of October. Living next to Olpejeta, one of the leading conservancies in the region, these community groups need to understand their role in conservation. It is their responsibilities not to do poaching as this vice will lead to the extinction of the endangered wildlife species. It is also their responsibity to report poaching cases. The meeting was attended by over 300 people. Other stakeholders who attended the event include the KWS officers, the area chief, and the community elders.
