Increasing droughts and desertification have struck Kenya with increasing frequency. This has put a severe burden on this country which receives less than 400 mm. of rain on over 70% of its area. Camel husbandry is perceived by many government and development strategies as a viable means of reducing the effects of drought and desertification. Livestock technicians and development agents are untrained in camel husbandry. The references available on camel husbandry are not designed with the field worker in mind. This handbook is meant to provide a concise yet basic resource on camel husbandry. It is designed to acquaint the field worker with a working knowledge of camels and camel husbandry in Kenya.
