Kenya

Located in Eastern Africa, Kenya is known for its natural treasures and its astonishing wildlife. Despite being the largest economy in the area, the majority of its labor force is active in agriculture making in the most important sector. Maize is the most important crop in the country with yield failures almost inevitably resulting in food shortages and famine. Other essential crops are rice, wheat, sorghum, cassava, and beans. Tea and coffee are among the dominant cash crops. Another important sector in Kenya is tourism which is highly reliant on the existing wildlife. The conservation of its famous wildlife habitats such as the Masai Mara is, therefore, crucial. Regenerative Agroforestry is increasingly applied in Kenya, especially, under the lead of the World Agroforestry Center (ICRAF) which is based in Nairobi. While issues such as land degradation and desertification are still major threats to the population’s food security, the spread of agroforestry is delivering promising results.
