EU and UNEP announce a forest restoration project in Kenya

The European Union and the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) have started a project worth two million Euros in order to rehabilitate the north-western part of the biggest water reservoir and forest area “Mau” in Kenya. The project is in line with a strategy of the Kenyan government that wants to restore one of the biggest integral forest areas in sub-Saharan Africa and will help to preserve biodiversity which has an estimated value of $1,5 billion/year for the Kenyan economy. The project, details of which were presented at a forum between UNEP and the environment ministry currently held in Nairobi, will help economic sectors that are dependent on water from the Yala and Nyando rivers. These rivers constitute important fresh water resources and provide water for 5000 hectars of rice cultivation.
