Nexus between Land Tenure and Women Participation in Bee Keeping in Baringo South Sub-County, Baringo County

Yator Caroline Jemase | Dr. Lilian Rotich Chesikaw

Abstract: This study examined the relationship between land tenure and women participation in bee keeping in Baringo South Sub- County. The study collected data through questionnaires and interview guides. Data was collected from 128 respondents sampled through simple random sampling. The study adopted ordered logistic regression to examine the relationship between land tenure and women participation. In this study, women farmers with individual land tenure were hypothesized to participate and at high levels of bee farming, while those with communal and leasehold have less probability of participating in beekeeping. The findings revealed that owning land on individual basis leads to greater women participation in beekeeping and that lack of land ownership reduces women participation in beekeeping. From the conclusions, the study recommends that the county government should put up some legal interventions aimed at enabling more women to own land since this is a prerequisite for greater women participation in beekeeping. Furthermore, elimination of land ownership as a criterion for participating in beekeeping activities such as trainings can attract more women participants who do not commonly own land on individual and communal basis.
