The proximity of the Athi-Kapiti plains to the capital city of Nairobi has seen the region experience rapid urbanisation and industrialisation, largely at the expense of the natural environment. AKWCA, through its four focus areas, is driving sustainable land use management that seeks to incorporate natural resources conservation in urban planning and development across the Athi-Kapiti ecosystem.
Working with local communities, landowners and conservation partners to develop on-the-ground conservation solutions that protect the wildlife that rely on the Athi-Kapiti ecosystem to survive and thrive.
Supporting community conservation efforts seeking to restore habitat connectivity and prevent further habitat fragmentation, degradation and loss in the Athi-Kapiti ecosystem.
Community and Livelihoods
Empowering local communities and landowners across the Athi-Kapiti plains to explore conservation opportunities that improve livelihoods while safeguarding nature.
Policy and Advocacy
Promoting a holistic approach to urban planning and development in a quest to create an Athi-Kapiti where development and conservation are seen as mutually inclusive.
