WHAT WE DO

RESEARCH

We undertake empirical applied scientific research through the lens of human welfare. The research is aimed at addressing existing and emerging human - natural resource interactions and is driven by the principle that conservation of biodiversity and their habitats can only succeed when local communities derive economic benefits from the conservation activities. Our research aims to develop knowledge and understanding of natural resources and systems and how human beings’ interactions with them cause positive and negative effects.

TRAINING

We undertake training for and on behalf of community-based organizations, youth groups, women groups, county and national government agencies on natural resource management and sustainable development including forestry, renewable energy, water resource development planning, fisheries and aquaculture, silviculture and apiculture. Other areas of training expertise include youth leadership and social skills development and environmental stewardship.

CONSULTANCY
