Project General Description

The Ewaso Ng’iro North Natural Resources Conservation Project (ENNNRCP) hosts the poorest districts in Kenya. The project meets the government objective of improving the quality of life for the population in the ASALs and is in line with the Bank’s strategy of promoting the efficient management of natural resources with the objective of reducing poverty. It is complementary to and enhance the impact of the other current major Bank-funded initiative in the agricultural sector, namely the ASAL-Based Livestock and Rural Livelihoods Support Project, as well as donor activities in adjacent districts. The project comprises three components: (i) Water Resources Development and Management; (ii) Participatory Catchment Conservation, (iii) Project Coordination and Capacity Building. It will be implemented over a period of 6 years.

Project Objectives

The sector goal is to contribute to poverty reduction through sustainable natural resources conservation and management. The project’s specific objective is to improve water resources management, agricultural land use, and forest resource conservation in the Ewaso Ng’iro North river (ENNR) catchment.


The project will directly benefit an estimated 70,000 households or about 20% of the population of the project area. The beneficiaries will include river water users associations, water and forest users associations, tree nursery groups, pastoralists, agro-pastoralists, beekeepers, ENNDA and district line ministry staff. Women are expected to make up about 20% of the beneficiaries.
