Public-private-people partnerships - a concept to combine biodiversity and economic developments in coastal forests

As of: July 2019

Objective and activities

The project will restore and protect forest and mangrove ecosystems in the coastal county of Kwale. It will address major threats from recent large scale economic developments and an increasing demand for wood-fuel energy. This will be done through public-private-people partnerships. Coastal forests constitute important carbon sinks, biodiversity hotspots and are crucial for community livelihoods. The project will work with communities, authorities and stakeholders on ecosystem restoration, sustainable management of resources and the integration of ecosystem values in policies and plans. The project will also address new drivers for ecosystem destruction from the private sector, by promoting energy and water efficiency and by strengthening and applying environmental and social safeguards at the national and the local level. Thus, the Kenyan government will be supported to implement Aichi target 15 and the National Biodiversity Strategy and Action Plan, objectives 1, 3, 6 and 10.
