Land-use and livelihood patterns in Eastern African drylands have changed profoundly in recent decades. Ethnographic data from East Pokot in Kenya’s Baringo area illustrate some of the major change dynamics and point to relevant drivers. While until the 1990s the pastoral Pokot have managed an open, non-fragmented rangeland, wildlife conservation, sedentarization and land-use intensification as well as increasing contestation of borderlands have led to fragmentation and contraction of former commons and to endogenous commodification and land-rush. Expectations of future developments, such as large-scale infrastructure projects and changing politico-administrative frameworks further fuel these dynamics. They create imagined topologies of value in this previously marginalized semi-arid rural area and drive economies of anticipation. The resulting processes of demarcation, boundary making and enclosure are manifest in severe conflicts over land at different scales.
