Participatory action planning meetings will be held, involving all stakeholders; this will involve mobilizing and meeting with Sub-county leaders, community/group leaders, opinion leaders and key informants. Committees will be made to help in the formation of a community environmental/wildlife action plan.
Communities will be sensitised on wetland/aquatic and terrestrial biodiversity values as well as the functions of the general environmental management. Sensitisation meetings will be held with S/c leaders, local leaders, key informants, opinion leaders, groups and communities. This awareness creation will be aimed at changing community’s attitude in order to motivate them to efficiently manage their eco-system.
The project will also involve trainings in, participatory planning, monitoring and evaluation, project prioritisation training for Community Based Extension Workers (CBEWs) and individual community groups, as well as group leaders, on environmental management, environmental enrichment, natural resource management, biodiversity conservation, improved crop and livestock production, will be done to build their capacities.
Furthermore, more than 3000 tree seedlings will be distributed to the selected communities to plant in the areas that have lost tree cover. This will reduce on their poverty, improve their nutrition, improve soil fertility, increase tree cover, reduce soil erosion and increase biodiversity.
Hygiene and home improvement campaigns and competition will be carried out and prizes will be awarded to motivate good performers.
