Land Regeneration and Restoration
While famous for its coastline, landscapes across the county are varied. The Lamu Archipelago is made up of over 60 wild islands, while the mainland boasts rich forests, vast savannahs and ancient forests.
Much of the land is under stress from urbanisation, unsustainable farming, dumping and sand harvesting. This is threatening rich habitats and also increasing the instance of human-wildlife conflict. However, with improved land management and land restoration projects, much of the land can be regenerated to support local communities with sustainable food production and other income streams.
Freshwater also continues to be a problem across the county, however, land regeneration and restoration projects will also help in restoring the hydrology of the area thus improving access to freshwater.
