Prof. Monica delivering a Seminar at the Wangari Maathai Institute

Monica Lengoiboni, Assistant Professor, University of Twente, Netherlands delivered a seminar at the Wangari Maathai Institute for Peace and Environmental Studies on Pastoralists Seasonal Land Rights in Land Administration . Monica Lengoiboni is a Geographer whose research concerns pastoralists’ seasonal migrations; the spatial and temporal components of their customary land rights; and how such flexible land rights could be accommodated, instead of being left out in the formal system of land administration and cadastres. Formal or statutory land tenures continue to expand in the Kenyan rangelands. And often, the formal law associated is ‘stronger’ than customary law. Social, environmental and economic effects due to reduced mobility have been substantial, yet pastoralism remains the dominant land use in the dry lands.
