The Kasigau Corridor REDD+ project protects over 500,000 acres of dryland forest in southeastern Kenya, securing the wildlife migration corridor between Tsavo East and Tsavo West National Parks. Prior to project implementation, the forested area was under intense threat from slash and burn agriculture, thus regional advancement of alternative livelihoods and sustainable community development have been instrumental in the project’s realization.
