This project would a game changer for IDPs , refugees & returnees of productive age 15-50 years old who for one reason or the other would be idling due to lack of opportunities as a result of being in hostile & new environment. With this project they would innovative & optimistic with financial transfers to those engaged in the project will enable them positive socioeconomic empowerment decisions while sustaining the environment to be resilient to vagaries of climate change. This is a win win project for environment & displaced persons.

On identifying Baringo as starting point would be good but contextualizing realities on the ground would help us. In Baringo we shall be dealing with episodic IDPs created by cattle rustling which is a terrible security challenge due to sophisticated weapons( AK47 ) in the hands of uneducated youth Driven but culture & informal cattle economy. These are sporadic attacks & very lethal. National government security system are operating in these areas all the time . Based on the complexity & diversity prevailing in Kenya a keener look into intervention strategy is key because some areas you must work with national government & sometimes it takes time to bring government on board because modalities & formalities of engaging them. I am putting this forward to help us in shaping the project.
