  • State institution not executing their roles as expected thus; high insecurity with rampant loss of lives and property, displacement of persons and eviction thus many areas deserted
  • Local community participation and involvement due to low capacities
  • Development actors poor strategies in dev implementation
  • Ignorance to invest in Research and development
  • Poor leadership with pathetic infrastructure has hindered investments opportunities (roads & no communication in 60% 0f the County )
livelihoods and food security1
