Abstract
Western Kenya Integrated Ecosystem Management Project (WKIEMP) is anticipated to build the capacity of local communities and other institutions in identifying and managing ecosystem issues as well as the implementation of conservation and/or mitigation measures. The project also addresses the linkages between upstream and .downstream land use practices through the development of community managed Integrated Ecosystem Management (IEM) plans. It is expected that, IEM interventions such as sustainable land management will with time increase above and below ground carbon sequestration while simultaneously reducing erosion and harmful agricultural run-off into waterways.
