What We Do

What We Do

One of the most fundamental ideas associated with capacity building is the idea of building the capacities of institutions and individuals so they are able to handle the problems associated with forests, environment, economic and social transformations. Developing institutions and individuals’ capacity whether at the national, county or community level allows for better governance that can lead to sustainable forests management and development.

KFWG facilitates institutional and individual capacity building to develop skills, knowledge and the ability to engage in the forest conservation, management and utilization. The purpose of the training programme is to increase the skills and knowledge of people working in the wider field of forestry sector.

Forests Conservation and Management

Forests influence climate, landform and soil composition and they exist in a wide variety. Each forest type has its own uniqueness and together these forests complement one another and perform the various socio-economic, ecological, environmental, cultural and spiritual functions.

Therefore it is necessary for Kenya to develop harmonised approaches in the management, conservation and sustainable development of forests is essential to meet the socio-economic and environmental needs of the present and future generations. To achieve this we have realised, among others, the need to sustain the multiple roles and functions of all types of forests, as well as the need to enhance forest conservation, management, and forest cover as outlined.
