Delivering nature-based solution outcomes by addressing policy, institutional and monitoring gaps in forest and landscape restoration

Sector:  Nature

“It's great to have such a demand-driven project, which is really coming out of national, county, partner, and local concerns.” -  Leigh Ann Winowiecki, Soil and Land Health Global Research Lead, Centre for International Forestry Research and World Agroforestry (CIFOR-ICRAF) 

This project embraces the implementation of gender transformative solutions for reduced emissions, as well as cross-sectoral coordination and co-learning around monitoring of forest and landscape restoration at the farm, county and national scale. Nature-based solutions, hold the potential to enhance biodiversity and ecosystem services, ensure job security, and improve livelihoods, all while expediting efforts to address climate change at local, national, and international levels. Achieving these outcomes necessitates dedication from a diverse range of stakeholders, including governments, research and development entities, conservation organisations, as well as farmers and community organisations, to implement evidence-based policies and practices driving the success of nature-based solutions in Kenya.

“Communities are critical as change agents and vision carriers for sustainable natural resource management and governance.” -  Nancy Githaiga, Kenya Country Director, African Wildlife Foundation (AWF)
