The Ilchamus community living in Legumgum sub-location of Baringo County has been exposed to effects of climate change both on terrestrial and aquatic environments to a great magnitude that attracts socio-economic and environmental concerns.
In the terrestrials environment they are exposed to the negative effects of an introduced alien species known as Prosopis julifora (known locally as Mathenge),which was introduced by the government in 1975 to stop desertification effect in the area, while on the aquatic environments they are facing the challenge of another introduced alien species called Crassipe grassippe (water hyacinth) which is alleged to have been introduced by a fishermen from lake Baringo into Lake 94 to protect the breeding areas for Claris and lung fish to increase their populations.
Women and parents who have given birth to girls as first born play a vital role in mitigating the above conditions in the community.
