Grazing water use
"Water provided as drinking water for livestock on grazing lands, in feed lots, and in commercial operations like dairies. In these facilities, water is also used for cooling and sanitation. Livestock also indirectly consume water when grazing on vegetation. Grazing water use is a water cycle flux." (U.S. Geological Survey, 2022)
Lilian Nguracha Balanga
Founder of Women .conserve at Samburu women
Am from pastoralist communities living in Kenya. I am a mother, a gender champion, I have more than 10 years of experience working with non-governmental organizations, I have been passionate about championing women and girls' rights since I was a young girl. I grew up in an atypical traditional culture where women are regarded as children, they were not allowed to own properties or make any decision. I learnt to voice out issues, I learnt to speak out on the right of other girls and myself. I have learnt, too, that women's rights are human rights regardless of age, tribe, color.
