Upper Tana Catchment Natural Resource Management Project

 

The goal of this project is to contribute to the reduction of rural poverty in the Upper Tana River catchment through increased sustainable food production and incomes for poor rural households, as well as sustainable management of natural resources.

The project has three main components:

  • Empowering communities to sustainably manage natural resources by building their capacity to develop resource management plans while also improving their livelihoods
  • Sustainably improving the incomes and living standards of the target group through interventions that are beneficial to the management of the natural resource base
  • Improving the sustainable management and use of water and other natural resources.

The target area for the project is the Upper Tana catchment, covering 6 of Kenya's 47 counties. Around 205,000 poor rural households – including smallholder crop and livestock farmers, agro-pastoralists, fishers and rural traders – are expected to benefit from the initiative, which features a special focus on women, young people and other vulnerable groups.
