The main driver for the persistence of deforestation in Kenya, despite government and widespread community-led efforts, is crop value. Farmers who earns on average $2 a day, cannot make a live-able wage on traditional crops like maize. What is more, climate change is disrupting the traditional agro-pastoral systems. This project aims to protect hundreds of hectares of forest in Mount Kenya region, in a sustainable way through helping communities garner meaningful income from non-extractive forest resources, instead of cutting the trees. We use a 3Bs model (Biodiversity, Business, Bread), that balances conservation, profit and local income.
