INFORMATION

We proudly announce the final delivery of our Amboseli re-greening project in Kenya within time and budget! Together with our local implementation partners AET and ACC we re-greened 8 km² in the Amboseli national park through fencing of three woodland plots based on the David Western method and the implementation of eight so-called ‘Olopololi’ plots.

Benefits:

  • Directly 300 people
  • Indirectly almost 5.000 people
  • Over 800 hectares re-greened by improved tree and grass cover, improved range-land productivity, late season reserve for livestock, biodiversity and reduced soil erosion.

Through this project we currently are the biggest funder for landscape restoration in the Amboseli National Park.

  • Temporary woodland exclosures to protect deforested areas allowing them to restore.
  • Fenced grass land plots to protect self-sustaining grass seeding banks ran by individual households.
  • Water harvesting and erosion prevention to retain rainwater and prevent erosion and flooding.
  • Installment of grazing management committees to prevent further overgrazing.
  • Together with local partners Justdiggit developed Community awareness and mobilization programs to ensure involvement and acceptation by the local community.

PROGRESS

  • Olopololi plots: to protect sustainable grass seeding we have (re)installed Maasai pasture and grazing management in eight ‘Olopololi grass plots’. All eight Olopololi plots have been finalized and delivered.

  • Inkiito bunds: these bunds have been dug on own initiative by the local community. They’ve taken a training in Kuku and now have their own bund-experts.

  • Monitoring: Resource assessor’s trainers are trained and employed to monitor and 
evaluate the re-greening plots.

  • Grass seeds bank: A clear result of how our grass seeds banks work. Left is unprotected land, on the right side of the fence is where we’ve planted seeds and protected it from overgrazing.

  • Tree planting: 5.000 trees are planted in the Amboseli National Park to prevent erosions and floodings.
