Afforestation and reforestation
Afforestation and reforestation: Working with the local communities on afforestation and reforestation projects to the degraded areas in Kenya
Afforestation and reforestation can ensure social, economic and environmental improvements, contribute to the sustainable development (e.g. increase productivity and resilience of land) and provide additional income generation. These practices also contribute to guarantee ecosystems services by reducing vulnerability to climate change (i.e. forests help in regulating natural resources, controlling hydrological processes and land degradation, maintaining species biodiversity and reducing pests and diseases attack).
