WWF-Kenya's work on Forests
Our work in forest management is aimed at averting the worrying trend towards rapid forest encroachment, unsustainable utilization of forest resources, deteriorating river water quality, disruption of flow regimes in river and skewed distribution of benefits.
In Kenya our forest resources management initiatives target some of the most biodiversity-rich forests, including forests that also act as water towers for important downstream water users, and some forests that are critical cultural/sacred sites to indigenous communities in both terrestrial and marine ecosystems
