About David Ole Nkedianye

David is a founding Director of the Reto O Reto Foundation in Kitengela, Kenya, which aims to link research with local pastoral livelihoods and conservation.  For his fellowship, David facilitated linkages among Maasai communities and conservation organizations to enhance mutual participation in conservation, while exploring innovative and sustainable ways of generating revenue for local households and conserving the environment.  David continues to work at the interface of pastoral communities, research and conservation organizations, and policy makers to enhance understanding of problems affecting livelihoods and sustainability, especially in the dry lands of East Africa.
