Country Report on farmers profiles and assessment of options for land restoration based on tree plantations. Kenya – Data of 2018
Aymen Frija, Hassen Ouerghemmi. (12/5/2020). Country Report on farmers profiles and assessment of options for land restoration based on tree plantations. Kenya – Data of 2018. Lebanon: International Center for Agricultural Research in the Dry Areas (ICARDA).
This report analyzed socioeconomic and tree’s experiment data in Kenya for the year 2018. It provides an overview of the main factors which are enabling tree’s survival rates in the studied areas and shed light on the most important management options and agroecological contexts which favor the success of tree’s plantations. Trees are effective for soil protection and for mainstreaming a large set of ecosystem services. They also have implications in terms of food security. Results of this project report provide recommendations about the most enabling factors which can help reaching high survival rates of new tree’s plantations. These factors can be taken into consideration by the development stakeholders for effective implementation of large land restoration actions in sub-Saharan African countries.
