Due to the effect of global climate change, drought combined with bush fires and overgrazing by large herbivores (in particular elephants), many originally forested regions in Kenya have developed into a semi-desert bush and grass savannah.
Sub-project A. Reforestation
An area of 25 hectares in Taita Hills Sanctuary will be reforested and large herbivores excluded. Tree nurseries have been established in the neighbouring Msorongo and Mwashuma communities. They supply the saplings. Reforestation helps conserve the ecosystem and biodiversity and contributes to the livelihood of the local population.
- Regenerating biodiversity through afforestation
- Involving people in nearby communities in afforestation and sapling cultivation, creating new jobs in tree nurseries
- Awareness-raising in nearby communities, e.g. through setting up Wildlife Clubs
