Natural Resource Management for All generations
Our society is undergoing social, political and economic transitions. In order for sustainable development to be achieved progress has to be made in four key areas: Political Consensus, Policies and Legislations, Economic Development and Social Progress. It is right policies and their implementation that will fuel any sustainable and enduring progress for current and future generations.
We aim to influence natural resource policy, legislation and regulations. We endeavor to support policy-based solutions to address natural resource governance challenges in a manner that creates sustainable and enduring change. We work to influence policies framework and challenge those policies that disenfranchise communities and compromise natural resources; we incorporate best practice on using evidence, work on research to provide evidence based advocacy and propose viable policy options. Our work involves both lobbying decision-makers and mobilizing citizen voices. We work with County Government of Kwale, various CSOs and the Private Sector to influence policies. We empower communities to actively participate in making policy change happen and in following up policy implementation.
