Environment and Conservation Program

Local communities and indigenous people who live close to areas with significant biodiversity and natural resources have a wealth of knowledge that has accumulated through a long series of observations transmitted from generation to generation to contribute to the conservation of ecosystems and sustainable development. They are aware of a large variety of uses of local biodiversity including medicinal uses.

  2. Strengthen the existing Knowledge Management process of Global knowledge accumulation and local issue based feedback through a backward-forward linkage with indigenous people to global eco-researchers;
  3. Encourage and strengthen community participation to conserve the environment through the use of indigenous conservation practices which have limited negative impacts on the eco system and bio diversity;
  4. Create and promote self-sustaining environmental conservation groups at village levels in selected sub counties called Village eco conservation forums and facilitate their registration as CBOs and   reduce on the rate of deforestation.
