Project Summary:
By 2016, the biodiversity and ecosystem services associated with the Boni-Dodori forest complex are understood and knowledge generated is being used by the responsible agencies and six Aweer and two Ijara forest communities, to sustain community-based forest management and deliver resilient conservation-based livelihoods for the poorer majority (1,800 people) of the local population. Understanding the link between ecosystem services and community well-being will ensure that strategies for community stewardship are built on sustainable-use of resources as well as new conservation-based livelihoods. Data and methodologies will be used to advocate for the implementation of CBNRM and protection of the Boni-Dodori.
