LAKE NAIVASHA BASIN ECOSYSTEM BASED MANAGEMENT 

 Project Title:

Project Description 

Lake Naivasha is one of the two freshwater lakes in the Kenyan part of the Rift. The key values provided by Lake Naivasha Basin (LNB) are globally significant biodiversity, and provision of water and fertile soil. The freshwater supports a rich ecosystem and is challenged by land degradation, water pollution and loss of biodiversity, resulting in a reduction in provision of ecosystem services. The project objective is to restore forest ecosystems and reduce land degradation in the LNB catchment for increased protection of Lake Naivasha’s water resources, biodiversity, and associated ecosystem services to support the local and national economy.
