Investment in data for sustainable land use and forest management in Kenya

In 2010, EfD-Kenya embarked on a pilot study analyzing the effects of forest devolution in Kenya with a specific focus on Kakamega forest. In particular the research focuses on the formation of Community Forest Associations (CFA) that are expected to manage forests after Kenya’s recent devolution process.

Intensive data collection on this was undertaken in 2013 in forests in five different provinces in Kenya.  The overall aim is to invest in a large and credible data set that can be used to analyze related socioeconomic issues at the household level.
