Hailed as one of the most mega-biodiverse nations in East Africa, Kenya is home to over 6,500 plant species along with over 1,000 birds and about 350 mammals. Despite its rich biodiversity, many of Kenya’s iconic species are threatened with extinction due to habitat loss and fragmentation. On the occasion of the International Endangered Species Day, we are spotlighting the project “Connectivity North” co-funded by the French Facility for Global Environment (FFEM) and the French Development Agency (AFD) to support community conservation activities in northern Kenya.

Innovation at the heart of solutions to reconcile forest and humanity

Homme et Forêt
First reservoir of terrestrial biodiversity, forests are, along with land, a formidable lever for climate regulation. Deforestation from agriculture causes nearly a quarter of anthropogenic greenhouse gas emissions and an accelerated loss of biodiversity. The FFEM addresses together the forest and agricultural territories, intimately linked. For 30 years, the FFEM has supported innovative solutions with 105 projects financed on forests and agricultural land and an amount of €144 million committed.
