The present intervention concerns the second phase of the Green Zones Development Support Project. It will focus on increasing the national forest cover and household incomes through rehabilitation of degraded forests, improvement of forest infrastructure and community capacities and livelihoods in the target counties. The project will be implemented in fifteen counties in Kenya namely; Embu, Meru, Machakos, Tharaka-Nithi, Nyeri, Murang’a, Kirinyaga, Kiambu, Nyandarua, Nakuru, Baringo, Kericho, Bomet, Nyamira and Kisii. These counties cover four forest conservancies1 and three out of five Kenya’s water towers including Mt. Kenya, Aberdares, and the Mau complex. The counties were selected based on levels of forest degradation, social economic and environmental vulnerability. The project comprises three main components: (i) Forest Conservation and Livelihood Support (ii) Sustainable and Inclusive Value Chains Development and (iii) Project Management and Coordination.
The objective of the project is to improve forest conservation and livelihoods for sustainable forest management in 15 counties in Kenya.
The direct beneficiaries of the project are estimated at 167,083 households out of which 40% (66,833) will be 8 women. Indirectly, the project will benefit 501,249 people within the project area. It will also assist the county governments in capacity building and technical support.
