Project General Description

The Farm Income Enhancement and Forest Conservation Project is designed to support Government’s Plan for Modernisation of Agriculture. This plan aimed at increasing incomes and improving the quality of life of poor subsistence farmers and their household. It also aims to ensure food security, provide gainful employment and promote sustainable use and management of natural resources. The project will direct its efforts towards using small-scale irrigation facilities and improved soil fertility management practices, to produce and market high value crops. In addition, the project will conserve and protect the environment through strengthening watershed management using well established structures at national, district, sub-county, village/community levels. It will address deforestation and problems of natural resources degradation. The project comprises three components, namely: i) Forestry Support, with two sub-components (Community Watershed Management; and Tree Planting); ii) Agricultural Enterprise Development, with four sub-components (Soil Fertility Management; Small Scale Irrigation and Crop Development; Apiculture Promotion; and Agricultural Marketing); and iii) Project Coordination and Management.

Project Objectives

The sector goal is to contribute to poverty reduction. The objective of the project is to improve incomes, rural livelihoods and food security, through sustainable natural resources management and agricultural enterprise development.

Beneficiaries

The project’s main target is resource poor farmers. This project will avail them opportunities for their income enhancement. The Forestry Support Component will be implemented in 33 districts and will provide direct benefits to 33,000 households. Beneficiaries will include communities living adjacent to the reserves, farmers adopting agro-forestry practices, as well as service providers and Government officials who will be trained on sustainable conservation and tree planting practices.
