Promoting nature-based solutions for land restoration while strengthening national monitoring technical working group in Kenya

Kenya

Titre : Promoting nature-based solutions for land restoration while strengthening national monitoring technical working group in Kenya

Pays : Kenya

Durée : 06/2021 - 05/2022

Objectif : To establish a national restoration monitoring technical working group in Kenya and promote gender transformative restoration activities and knowledge products that enable their scaling.

Présentation
Over 36% of Kenya’s population lives below the national poverty line. Only 20% of the country’s land is classified as suitable for agriculture, yet 75% of the population depend on it. Escalating land degradation, exacerbated by climate change, increasing frequency and severity of droughts, flooding, locust invasions and low investment in sustainable and resilient agriculture negatively impact the environment and rural livelihoods.

Therefore, this project addresses land degradation, climate change, biodiversity loss and poverty through nature-based solutions including planting the right trees in the right place for the right purpose, farmer managed natural regeneration (FMNR), soil and water conservation, agroecology and other restoration practices.

The project will also strengthen environmental monitoring frameworks in Kenya to enable African Forest Landscape Restoration (AFR100) commitment reporting. This will be done through the establishment and strengthening of a joint restoration monitoring technical working group that will enable development of context-relevant indicators and tools for assessing landscape restoration.

Makueni County, identified for its high restoration potential will be the basis for identification and implementation of contextually appropriate and gender-responsive restoration options for upscaling to other counties.
