Forest Protection

The active protection of the remaining indigenous forest requires law enforcement to prevent further fragmentation and degradation of the forest. Kakamega forest was gazetted in 1933 and has national forest reserve status. However, it has continued to be degraded. The project addresses the problem by ensuring effective policing by the government organizations involved by strengthening their capability.

Forest Department and Kenya Wildlife Service under a memorandum of understanding work jointly to protect the forest.
  • ICIPE acts as a catalyst for efficient protection by availing project resources to Forest Department and Kenya Wildlife Service for the training of forest rangers and guards at Manyani, Tsavo West, Kenya.
