KEY THEMATIC AREAS
East Africa is fast losing its wildlife. Threats such as loss of habitat and poaching are increasingly threatening to wipe out the wildlife, which tourism is hinged on.
Forest resources and associated lands need to be carefully managed to meet the social, economic, cultural and spiritual needs of present and future generations.
Wetlands in East Africa continue to suffer a steady decline in their health and extent, as a result of encroachment, pollution and unsustainable utilization.
The East African coast is faced with a rapidly deteriorating marine environment and we have since 2004 been working to encourage coastal communities to take ownership of their marine resources, and to manage them sustainably.
