dc.description.abstract "Water is a basic need and an important catalyst for accelerating socio-economic development in semi-arid areas. In southern Kenya people left poverty behind because of developing water sources in a semi-arid setting. However, these improved shallow wells are running dry not becaue of climate change but due to a hydrological drought which resulted from a change in land tenure that triggered the depletion of groundwater resources by export oriented flower farms." en_US
