Though communities have knowledge of usefulness of existing resources but lack adequate infrastructure related resources to exploit these resources. Poor road network have been a hindrance that lagged community to timely fetch benefit out of this resources. On-going upgrading of Moyale-Isiolo highway will add to the economy of the northern Kenya and especially revive the livestock sector. Existing traditional institutions are there to work on the footsteps of the ancient traditional laws with minimal understanding of the bounds of newly formed Kenyan constitution. Traditional systems have proved to be sustainable and better manage ASAL endeavours. Local government administration need to act in unison with the traditional institution in order to strengthen the community capacity in decision making exercise to produce viable planning for the pastoral communities. Much work has to be done in order to put the communities into picture in order to enhance effective exploitation of available resources. Some requirements to fully exploit the natural resources are not beyond the control or the scope of the community i.e. existing policies that govern resource management. CIFA undertook creative approaches to uphold natural resource management among pastoral communities. Adequate training given to community over a span of 10 years has seen the communities gain improved interest in group formation and contribute to environment conservation. Charcoal traders become registered with the forestry department in order to add revenue to county council of the district and on other hand fund raise through group contribution for the registration fee. The group better environment management policy which instruct them to plant a tree for every tree cut for charcoal burning. To further strengthen their capacity CIFA worked closely with the government line ministries to strengthen their capacities on effective utilizing of the environmental services.
