Sub-National Restoration Opportunity Assessment Methodology (ROAM) Implementation

Posted on 14 January 2022

LOCATION: FLR in Africa Programme - Kenya Component, Kajiado Country

WWF-Germany, WWF-Kenya and several international organizations (IUCN, WRI,
FAO, World Bank, AUDA-NEPAD and GIZ) are jointly implementing a Large-scale
Forest Landscape Restoration (FLR) programme in Africa in 4 countries namely;
Cameroon, Kenya, Rwanda and Malawi. In Kenya, the programme is implemented in
Loitokitok-Amboseli area and will be building on an emerging cross-border programme
that will be scaling up the important commitment of the WWF Network of contributing
to forest landscape restoration (FLR) efforts and to meet Kenya’s obligations under the
Bonn Challenge/AFR100 of restoring 5.1 million ha of deforested and degraded lands
by 2030. WWF-Germany provides technical, financial and organizational support to
WWF-Kenya in a systematic way. The cooperation provides an ideal partnership for
successful project implementation under the local-to-global approach of the WWF
Network. The programme is funded by the International Climate Initiative (IKI) of the
German Federal Ministry of the Environment, Nature Conservation and Nuclear Safety
The FLR in Africa programme’s overall aim is to increase the socio-economic,
environmental and climate-related benefits of Forest Landscape Restoration (FLR) on
a large scale in Cameroon, Kenya, Malawi and Rwanda. FLR increases and protects
carbon stocks in vegetation and soils, increases the diversity of land use systems and
the resilience of subsistence farmers and ranchers to the negative effects of climate
change, and reduces the pressure on, and loss of, habitats and hotspots that are rich in
bio-diversity. In Kenya, the programme offers on-site support for the implementation
of FLR measures in the Loitokitok-Amboseli landscape on a total of at least 25,000
hectares covering Loitokitok Forest Reserve, forest-adjacent farmlands and group
ranches further downstream. In addition, the programme supports capacity building
and policy advice in the country in order to upscale the implementation of the FLR
approach on-site, to mobilize additional resources for FLR, to exchange regional
experiences on FLR and to monitor the results of FLR. The target audiences of the
programme are land users and their local organizations, as well as county government
of Kajiado, private sector companies, NGOs, financial institutions and government
organizations. The programme helps to ensure that more evidence-based inclusive and
gender-transformative FLR approaches can be widely adopted and disseminated at
regional and national level. At the national level, various actors are provided with FLR
knowledge and benefit from improved policies and gender-sensitive models for up-
scaling and financing FLR. At the international level, the actors involved in FLR will
benefit from improved and field-tested FLR experiences. By working with international
initiatives (Bonn Challenge, AFR100 and others) the program will help to make FLR a
continental movement. In addition, this program brings together many international
and national partners. By providing and disseminating “best practices” examples, the
South-South exchange is promoted and cooperation in the field of FLR on the African
continent is strengthened.
