Land of Thorns – Struggling for Survival in Karamoja| 49mins
Director: Steffen Keulig and Sacha Kagan | Producer: David Knaute
Focus Years: 2008 | Country: Germany
Karamoja is a semi-arid region of northeast Uganda. It borders Kenya and Sudan, with Ethiopia nearby. The region includes at least a million inhabitants, among which are the semi-pastoral Karimojong and Pokot tribes. While their traditional, semi-nomadic way of life is jeopardized, both tribes are also feared for their armed cattle raids. Karamoja is a region in crisis, plagued by small arms (AK-47s), demographic explosion, climate change, border conflicts, and difficult development and sustainability issues. But Karamoja is more than the hotspot for a growing major crisis; Karamoja is a region where the complex issues of development and sustainability unfold, in all their dimensions: ecological, historical, cultural, economic, and political.
