Reshaping the terrain: Forest and landscape restoration in Kenya

Reshaping the terrain: Forest and landscape restoration in Kenya

The Mau Forest Complex forms the largest closed canopy forest ecosystem in Kenya and is an asset of great national and regional importance. The complex supports a wide range of environmental services crucial for the socioeconomic development of the region. Despite its critical importance in sustaining current and future economic development, the forest has been adversely affected by extensive illegal, irregular and ill-planned settlements, in addition to illegal forest resources extraction. Kenya Forest Service (KFS), has been undertaking efforts to mitigate the effects of degradation with the ultimate aim of securing and sustainably managing the Mau Forest Complex.
