Research on community conservation and ecosystem services
Nakuru, Ri 20100
Faith is an environmental scientist currently working on ecosystem services that benefit local communities, particularly small-scale farmers whose practices can benefit from conservation agriculture including biodiversity conservation and climate change mitigation. Until recently, Faith worked as national programmes coordinator at ERMIS Africa for six years, where she engaged local communities in various counties in Kenya to manage and conserve natural resources using participatory approaches. She offered technical support to Community Forest Associations to develop participatory forest management plans for Sururu, Molo, Koibatek, Kiptuget, Cheptais, Kaberwa, and Baraget forest reserves. Faith was a member of the team that developed the country’s model participatory plan for natural forests piloted at Chemususu forest reserve and has also worked on River Njoro watershed conservation projects. She is a member of several national and international professional associations, and holds a master’s degree in environmental science and a bachelor’s degree in wildlife management.
