Mobile Technology for Participatory Forest Management: Co-designing and testing prototypes in Kenya image

In this report we explore how mobile devices and applications can be leveraged to strengthen participatory forest management (PFM) efforts in Kenya.

Although Kenya presents its own highly-contextualised challenges and opportunities, our research identified five cross-cutting findings that we believe could also shape the opportunity for digital innovation in PFM in other LMICs. The research shows that there is clear demand and a growing need for digital tools that can tackle the persistent challenges that Community Forest Associations (CFAs) in Kenya encounter as they work to protect and regenerate forests.
