Exploring demand-side measures for the reduction of deforestation in Kenya and Tanzania

Simon Milledge


Forests in Tanzania and Kenya are experiencing high levels of deforestation and forest degradation due to the unsustainable extraction of forest products including timber and charcoal, and the conversion of forests for agriculture. In 2013, IIED and Development Associates Limited (DASS) undertook a scoping study in Kenya and Tanzania to identify potential demand side measures to curb deforestation and degradation. In 2014, a workshop was held in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania, with the objective of sharing and capitalising on the results of the study with relevant stakeholders. This event report synthesises the proceedings and results of that workshop.
