Reforestation

Reforestation can be used to reverse the trend of degraded land in Kakamega forest and restore it to a functional ecosystem while providing new habitats for biodiversity. Reforestation has become a standard part of conservation activities because it can speed the recovery of degraded lands before substantial losses of biodiversity have occurred. It also provides an important means of allowing a significant number of species to recover.
  • In consultation with the Forest Department, the ICIPE integrated project was allocated deforested Kakamega Forest areas.


  • Indigenous high value threatened tree species were selected for the reforestation program. Seedlings of the selected trees were nursery raised and planted in the allocated deforested area in collaboration with local communities.


  • The communities were further mobilized to maintain the planted seedlings.
