This publication was produced by MRG’s partner(s) with MRG. It remains the property of the organization(s) in question and do not necessarily reflect the views of MRG.
This conflict report was produced by MRG partners in the framework of the programme ‘Network for Peace: Preventing and Resolving conflicts through Early Warning Mechanism in Africa’ currently being implemented in Kenya, Uganda and Cameroon. In Kenya, the project is being implemented in Marsabit and Isiolo Counties by Isiolo Gender Watch (IGW) with financial support from UK Aid in partnership with Minority Rights Group International (MRGI).
The objectives of the mapping study were to establish existing conflict triggers, indicators, early earning and response mechanisms and the associated challenges in addressing conflict among the minority communities in Marsabit and Isiolo counties. Consultations were made through focus group discussions and key informants interviews with different stakeholders, including the target communities, local government leaders at the district, sub-county and lower levels, and religious and cultural leaders.
