Promoting eco-tourism and developing a school-based sports agenda for the conservation of the Kikuyu Escarpments forest.
Using KENVO’s past experience at Kereita forest the pilot area, this project proposes to upscale best practices like formation of local community partnerships, capacity building and focused community awareness whilst sharing lesson learned. Learning, experience-sharing and capacity-building will be promoted through exchange visits and meetings for the local groups around the forests. The project will also further continue encouraging sustainable uses of the forest by promoting activities like conservation education, community awareness, ecotourism and marketing the forest as important tourist site. It is expected that local communities will acquire knowledge and information that will enable them to use local forests sustainably.
