These include: Prokon, AutoCivil, CanalMan, Geotech, Geoslope, Bishop Morgan, Pipeline and Stormwater Network Analysis, SPSS (Version 10, 12 &17) and Cropwat programs}.

cabling is done using CAT6 UTP cable as the transmission media due to merits such as high data transmission rates, its outer shield to prevent physical damage, ease of management and cost effectiveness. Networking enables the staff to share resources on the network such as printers and files across the network efficiently and with much ease. Not only does an external hard disk for data backup is available but also a server computer with higher specifications (higher hard disk capacity) is configured on the network to act as a secondary data backup storage to all other computers on the network referred to as the clients. The server does back-up of each and every client on a daily basis as per the time schedule on the client. This ensures data protection and safety incase a client computer crashes or develops a problem that may require formatting and reloading of softwares by the administrator. The server though on the network, is secure in that, it is password protected and resides in the server room, hence can only be accessed by the network administrator or authorised personnel.

INTERNET FACILITY To necessitate effective and efficient communication with clients who are geographically far away, or who require rapid response to information within a short period of time, Samez has ensured the availability of internet connectivity. This facility is from a reliable source or ISP (Internet Service Provider) that is, Orange Broadband from Orange Kenya Ltd, and is available throughout (24hours daily) in all computers within the office premises. The service is running all through the weekdays including the weekends making office operation much easier in terms of on-lineresponse communication. With this capability of the facility, it enables the office to interact with the clients effectively irrespective of their geographical location. Internet availability in the office also assist the office staff in research work especially the engineers and consultants. The infrastructure involved in the facility installation is an ADSL Broadband mode of connection which is very stable and efficient. The data terminating equipment (DTE) used is a Live Box type of modem which is not only reliable and fast in terms of data transmission rates but also easier to configure and manage. To ensure its security, the modem is safely and securely housed in the server room within a cabinet under lock and key and can only be accessed by the administrator or authorised personnel. The bandwidth speed that the facility is currently providing is a 256/512 kbps which is unlimited and very fast. Because of its flexibility, the speeds can either be upgraded or downgraded depending on the need at no additional cost.

LOCAL AREA NETWORK (LAN) FACILITY The office has a well established and maintained Local Area Network (LAN) both wired and wireless facility which is running effectively. All the computers in different rooms within the office are networked using Central Topology architecture chosen due to its merits. The networking infrastructure or device deployed in the network is a 24-Port 3Com switch which has the ability of transmitting data at high rates across the network.

Consultancy on River Water Users Association (Arid Lands Resource Management Project II) Ministry of Special Programmes, Office of the President The Government of Kenya received credit from the International Development Association (IDA) towards the cost of Arid Lands Resource Management Project II and intends to apply a portion of this loan towards the consultancy on River Water Users Association in the above eight districts. Many former pastoralists have either been left destitute through the loss of their entire herd or have been severely affected by drought, prompting the need to develop an alternative livelihood. Many pastoralists have established small gravity fed irrigation plots along the banks of Tana, Turkwel, Kerio, Daua, and Ewaso Ngiro rivers. These former pastoralists do not have tenure of the lands they occupy, many abstract significant quantities of water from the rivers, such that water flowing off the slopes of highlands does not go for more than 50km, flow rates drop to unacceptably low levels or the river dries out. This causes conflict between upstream and downstream users not withstanding the pastoralist need for water. The objective of the consultancy is to assess to the capacity of the farmers to manage and maintain irrigation Infrastructure. It will also establish the types of crops grown, standard of crop husbandry and marketing. It is expected the consultancy will improve the farming systems appropriate for the arid areas and hence improve the food security of the agro-pastoralist.
