Marsabit forest, a natural space surrounded by desert, covers an area of over 16,000 hectares. This region in the North of Kenya hosts a core resource for neighboring communities and significant biodiversity. Rare species like elephants or Grévy zebras can be found there. Kenyans have growing needs for water and wood, meaning water, flora and fauna in Marsabit are threatened. AFD is supporting a project launched by the Kenya Wildlife Service (KWS). KWS seeks to provide alternative water supply points. In a nutshell, 300 water collection systems, including small dykes and dams have been created. Local populations can now provide for their families' water needs and they have also increased their crops. In this context, Marsabit and its natural diversity have also been preserved.
