Sustainable development in the periphery: is there a way out from food relief for the Turkana in Kenya?



Sustainable development in the periphery: is there a way out from food relief for the Turkana in Kenya?



Sustainable Development Bradford 4(2): 77-83



A brief historical account is given of the famine relief and development efforts in Turkana District in Kenya and their impact is analysed from a local perspective. The paper is based on field data collected in Turkana in 1987, supplemented by research reports and other project-based secondary data. The main conclusion is that previous activities have largely ignored the existing social basis for development and thus they have failed to create a sustainable institutional framework.
