Land degradation and sustainable Forest management and capacity development
Land degradation and sustainable Forest management and capacity development
The project aims to address land degradation resulting from a number of factors through development and implementation of scientifically sound systems of natural resources management, including land and ecosystems management practices. The land to be reclaimed falls within 4 hectares fenced plot belonging to Bokamano Conservation Trust. Three 4m gabions structures will be constructed across water ways within the plot with technical expertise provided by the Department of Forestry and Range Resources, the Ministry of Agriculture (land husbandry) and North East District Council. 200 tree seedlings (mostly indigenous) will be planted over a period of twelve months to restore the vegetation.

As part of value addition to the land under rehabilitation, guinea fowls will be reared to improve the standard of living in the community. A cultural house at roofing stage will be completed for multipurpose use to sustain the project. The initial construction commenced with funding for the GEF/SGP but could not be completed due to shortage of funds.

The board members (10 together with some community members) will be trained on financial management and project management to enhance the ability to smoothly implement the project and run the trust successfully.
