PROMOTING SUSTAINABLE LIVELIHOODS IN MARSABIT

Boosting resilience of indigenous fishing community

Dansanach is a pastoral community inhabiting Illeret pastoral zone situated in the far north of Marsabit County. They live at the mouth of river OMO. Wee-night-hours fishing is the lifeblood of this community that mastered such a sophisticated and tedious art – a divergent alternative livelihood – strange to other tribes within similar eco-system. The catch is to cope with global fishing regulations and best practices. CIFA came to rescue this community, issuing newer standards of fishing equipment which instilled hope and allowed a renewed commitment to their livelihood.
