Lake Baringo Community-Based Land and Water Management Project: Evaluation Report on project GF/3010-00-03

United Nations Environment Programme (2004)

The overall assessment of the project is that as a pilot project, it was successful in demonstrating effective strategies and approaches to rehabilitating degraded lands and conserving biodiversity. Some of the project components achieved only moderate results, especially in demonstrating alternative livelihoods. The most impressive accomplishment of this project is the general level of environmental awareness created in the lake catchment area and the residents' recognition that their livelihoods are inextricably linked to the health of the natural resources in the area. As evidenced by the support for a moratorium on fish harvests in the lake, which was achieved through an impressive stakeholder consultation process, there is a demonstrable willingness to protect livelihoods through environmental conservation.
