Millennium Fellowship Project: Panda Miti Project
The Panda Miti Project is a project very close to my heart. ’Panda’ is a Kiswahili word to mean plant and Miti is a Kiswahili word meaning trees. Having lived in a community that practices Agriculture as a form of livelihood I have been able to experience both the positive and negative impacts of climate change to agriculture. My motivation to venture into climate change mitigation strategies is the deforestation levels that have increased in Kenya and the unforeseen attainment of the national minimum target of 10% tree cover
