The transboundary coast area between Kenya and Somalia constitutes land and seas scapes with rich collection of invaluable species inhabiting forests, grasslands, agricultural land and near shore marine ecosystems.
The transboundary steering committee is a fifteen member team whose role is to advise on the performance of project management so as to realize the envisaged objectives and goals of BMP. They monitor progress and advice on cross cutting issues related to activity implementation.
Somalia is located in an extreme water scarce area, where most of the available water resources exist in rivers shared with neighboring countries and demand for water is increasing due to the population and urban growth.
The IGAD BMP implemented by ICRAF has successfully supported three project activities in Ras Kamboni, Somalia. The three activities are honey value chain development, rainwater harvesting and training and capacity building on natural resource management.
This baseline assessment study was funded by European Union through IGAD BMP implemented by World Agroforestry Centre (ICRAF) in the Tana-Kipini-Laga Badana Bush Bushle Land and Seascape (North East Kenya and South East Somalia).
