On 16th and 17th January 2014, Hakijamii organized a two day community training and awareness workshop in Turkana County on the “Impact of Extractive Industries, Community Development and Livelihood Change”. The workshop was held at Helena Groove Hotel. The first session of the meeting involved giving updates from the different sub counties in Turkana County with representatives giving status reports regarding oil exploration from their areas. The reports mainly focused on the impact that areas have felt from the activities that are ongoing and the various interventions that the players have been able to put in place. It was evident that there has been a lot of conflict between the firms doing oil exploration and the local community.
