The Dryland Livestock Wildlife Environment Interface Project
The Dryland Livestock Wildlife Environment Interface Project

This project addresses one of the eligible activity within the GEF Operational Programme number 13 on "Conservation and Sustainable Use of Biological Diversity Important to Agriculture" and also strongly responds to the GEF Operational Program number 15 on "Sustainable Land Management" whose objective is to mitigate the causes and negative impacts of land degradation on the integrity of ecosystems while at the same time improving livelihoods and the economic wellbeing of the people. Both countries are signatories to the UNCCD and UNCBD. Kenya ratified the UNCBD on 26th July 1994 and UNCCD on 24th June 1997. Similarly, Burkina Faso ratified the UNCBD on 2nd September 1993 and the UNCCD on 6th January 1996. The two countries are therefore eligible for GEF support in addressing the biodiversity and land degradation focal areas.
