This book explains the extent to which drought, poverty, and education levels affect the participation of nomadic pastoralists in community development; The benefits accrued from pastoralists' participation in community development; the extent other development agencies influence Nomadic pastoralist participation in community development; it also suggets appropriate strategies of enhancing nomadic pastoralist participation in community development
