The Woody Weeds Project

This project is implemented by the CABI Switzerland, in collaboration with Swiss, Ethiopian, Kenyan, Tanzanian and South African research organizations. It is funded by the Swiss National Science Foundation (SNSF) and the Swiss Agency for Development Cooperation (SDC). The project “Woody Invasive Alien Species in East Africa: Assessing and mitigating their negative impacts on ecosystem services and rural livelihood” aims to help mitigate the effects of woody invasive alien species (IAS) on biodiversity, ecosystem services and human well-being in selected study areas in Ethiopia, Kenya and Tanzania (woodyweeds.com). To achieve this goal, the project generates and shares knowledge on invasion processes and on context-dependent effects of woody IAS. Additionally, sustainable control measures have been elaborated, and Sustainable Land Management (SLM) strategies that mitigate the negative effects of woody IAS in the affected areas in East Africa developed and comprehensively documented. Phase 2 focuses more on disseminating knowledge generated in Phase 1, to inform the formulation of sustainable land management strategies that mitigate the negative effects of woody IAS in the affected areas and specifically so for Baringo County that makes our study sites in Kenya.
