Emmanuel Ole Kileli Leyani

December 2019 - January 2020: The EPICC project migration team received Emmanuel Kileli Leyani, Progam Officer at Parakuiyo Pastoralists Indigenous Community Development Organization (PAICODEO), founder and director of the Ereto Maasai Youth Organization (EMAYO), and Executive Director of The Kesho Trust. He participated in the first EPICC workshop in Dar es Salaam.

Mr. Leyani applied his expertise to review and validate the results of EPICC research on mobile farmers and pastoralists in Tanzania, including co-authoring research outputs. Discussions with the team helped to elaborate on local perceptions, intentions, and expectations for livelihood responses to climate change, including migration.

Mr. Leyani presented “Participatory Scenario Planning (PSP)”, a participatory training methodology to integrate meteorological forecasts with indigenous knowledge and practices, in order to build community-based plans for farmers and livestock keepers. The lecture spoke to a key objective of the EPICC project, namely, to improve co-production and dissemination of clear and timely climate information.
