Abstract
Kenya is an agricultural country and depends almost entirely on land productivity for subsistence and socio-economic development. However, about two-thirds of Kenya is semiarid to arid and rain-fed agriculture is confined to the remaining one-third of the country. The pressure exerted on the fragile ecosystems that characterize these semi-arid and arid lands by the large and rapidly increasing human population is at the heart of the desertification that is taking place.
