    This article is a contribution to the current debate on the concepts of land use planning and riparian zone
    conservation. It discusses some of the major theoretical and conceptual issues that impact on the
    practice of planning and conservation of riparian zones within the City of Nairobi. A conceptualization of
    planning and conservation of riparian zone as well as the linkage between the two is discussed as the

    Land-use history, not readily available
    for most places, remains the weakest link in nearly all
    studies of historic vegetation change, in Africa as well
    as other places in the world. Notwithstanding,
    communities hold a great wealth of knowledge on the
    processes and events influencing change on the land
    they occupy. The Lambwe Valley, southwestern Kenya,
    has a multi-ethnic population of settlers from the early
    1950s. These people have seen the transformation of
    an initially forested area with diverse challenges to

    Preliminary findings on the effects of land use in the Masinga Dam catchment, Kenya, on the storage capacity of the reservoir are presented. Remote sensing and GIS techniques, supplemented with ground reports, were used to determine areas most susceptible to erosion. A representative catchment was then chosen for rainy season monitoring of soil loss, river suspended sediments and discharge response to rainfall. In addition, Gerlach-type traps were used to evaluate erosion rates under different crop covers and slope gradients.

    For millenia, Greater Amboseli ecosystem of Kenya has had a central role in subsistence
    pastoralism and wildlife conservation by providing vast biological resources for pastoralists and
    their livestock; and habitat for wildlife. Recently, with the creation of Amboseli National Park
    and rapid changes in land tenure systems, the human use of the ecosystem has intensified. This
    change has shaped a pastoral landscape composed of livestock grazing, wildlife conservation,

    This thesis examines water quality status and deterioration in the Upper-
    Athi-Nairobi sub-catchments which covers an area of 1154.4 km2 with an annual
    discharge rate of 99242 m3/year (9.9 X 104 m3/yr). It is based on field and
    laboratory analysis of water quality parameters.
    The subject matter includes the assessment of land use processes
    responsible for water quality deterioration. These include Industrial and
    Agricultural activities. The study demonstrates how useful industrial
