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.
