Green Dreams, Local Struggles: Rift Valley Forum

Published on 15 November 2019

On 16 October 2019, the Rift Valley Forum hosted a discussion of initial findings from the Seeing Conflict at the Margins project, in partnership with the Institute of Development Studies (IDS, Sussex University) and Friends of Lake Turkana.

The forum opened with an introduction to the project, followed by a screening and discussion of videos and photography created by local teams over the past two years. The speakers presented on ways of ‘seeing’ resource development in communities in and around the Lake Turkana Wind Power and Ol Karia geothermal power project and discussed the insights on local people’s perspectives and the research approaches used.
