"Hungry season" food from the forests
J. Falconer Julia Falconer is a community forester currently based in Kumasi, Ghana on a forest management project implemented by Overseas Development Administration Forest foods are widely consumed in most agricultural communities and even in many urban areas in the developing world. In some cases, they provide a regular supplement to the diet; in others they represent a primary source of food. Most often, however, forest foods are consumed when cultivated food supplies are in short supply at the end of the agricultural season, during crop harvesting when there is little time for food preparation, or during emergencies such as famines and wars (Chambers and Longhurst, 1986). Although few studies systematically examine the seasonal importance of forest foods, a number of case-studies from around the world but primarily from Africa provide enough information to illustrate the critical role of forests in reducing seasonal imbalances in food supply, particularly for the rural poor. COLLECTING MAHUA FLOWERS as a seasonal grain substitute In India In most agricultural communities people rely on seasonal crop production. For many rural people, and especially for the poor, these cycles entail periods of food shortage. It is at these critical periods that the importance of forest foods is greatest.

Rehabilitating the Baringo Drylands of Kenya
Mike Crawley
Kampi ya Samaki, Kenya
A bull called Mwalimu helped save the lives of hundreds of cattle in Kenya's Baringo District during a recent drought.
Mwalimu means "teacher" in Swahili and this bull taught other cattle to do something that does not come naturally to them — eat cactus. Two successive years of drought had so much reduced the amount of fodder available in Baringo that cattle were starving to death. So, when staff from the Rehabilitation of Arid Environments (RAE), a charitable trust organization, heard about a bull that was eating cactus, they bought him and took him around the district to show hungry cows that they, too, could eat cactus once the thorns were burned off.
Cactus-eating cows
"The cows were willing to get on with it, but the people sometimes weren't," says Murray Roberts, RAE's Executive Director. Still, Mwalimu's cactus-eating behaviour was demonstrated directly to more than 150 cattle, and it's believed that the practice spread to many more herds.
RAE, which is supported by the International Development Research Centre (IDRC) and other donors, has a history of showing people that what might seem impossible can actually happen. Its work centres on the semi-arid Lake Baringo basin, about 300 kilometres northwest of the capital, Nairobi. Its primary activity involves reclaiming chunks of severely degraded land and turning them into productive fields, providing graphic proof that desertification is reversible, but this can only be sustained if the land is managed properly.

Marketing of smallholder produce synthesizes case studies carried out in three districts in Kenya on farm-level marketing. The report provides an economic analysis of farm-level entrepreneurship in the food and cash crop sectors. It aims at identifying how marketing agricultural products affects food availability and farmers' welfare as well as identifying opportunities and constraints in marketing. Marketing of smallholder produce: a synthesis of case studies in the highlands of central Kenya
Stachys N. Muturi (ed.), Julius K. Kilungo, Kavoi M. Muendo, Zacharia Mairura and Joseph G. Kariuki. 2001. TR No. 26. ISBN 9966-896-56-2. 56 + 13 pp. Economic analyses for smallholders
From producing purely for self-sufficiency, marketing of surplus is an increasingly important component of farm management. In doing so, farmers need to analyse which enterprise will be most profitable. Estimating costs and benefits on crop production, which is just as much a handbook as a report, presents methods for smallholders to carry out economical analyses. It covers budgeting, calculation of fixed and variable costs, calculation of income and how to prepare total and partial budgets. It is filled with illustrative case studies from Ethiopia.

As the current group in power, there is no reason to think the Kalenjin will rebel or even protest against the government. As mentioned however, if they lose power this could change.
Analytic Summary
The Kalenjin are indigenous (TRADITN = 1) and semi-nomadic pastoralists who inhabit the central Rift Valley Province (GROUPCON = 3). The term Kalenjin, which was first used in the late 1950s, is a creation of the colonial period. They are comprised of several Nilotic ethnic groups (the Kipsigis, Nandi, Pokot, Marakwet, Keiyo, Tugen, and Sabaot) who share similar languages (LANG = 2VGC) and culture. They are mostly animist (RELIGS1 = 8) but have multiple sectssome of which are different from the dominant group (BELIEF = 2). Kalenjin are relatively distinct from other ethnic groups in Kenya (ETHDIFXX = 5). However, they are not different from the dominant group in terms of general customs (CUSTOM = 0).
The ruling KANU party is the main representative of the Kalenjin people (GOJPA00 = 1). With the presidency and a preponderance of ministerial positions, the Kalenjin have been in a position to pursue their interests and have been relatively immune from targeted government repression, although human rights abuses by the government are rampant. Subsequently, protest against the government has been limited. However, should the Kalenjin lose power the situation will change. Protest will be more likely but also difficult to organize. As mentioned above, seven different tribes comprise the group (COHESX9 = 3) and there is already disagreement about how to proceed when Moi retires. The group does not receive any transnational support that would be of assistance.
