NAIROBI, Friday, April 24, 2015 -- In a significant effort to scale up Kenya's fight against wildlife crime, public- and private-sector partners have joined forces to address dangerously high levels of poaching and trafficking. In a two-day workshop, representatives of government, non-governmental organizations and the private sector identified targeted, practical interventions to fortify wildlife laws and policies and enhance a range of community and law-enforcement initiatives.

The Nairobi workshop was sponsored by the United States Agency for International Development’s (USAID) Wildlife Trafficking Response, Assessment and Priority Setting (Wildlife TRAPS) Project. Jointly convened by TRAFFIC and the Kenya Wildlife Service (KWS), the workshop identified a series of national priority actions to combat the illegal killing and trafficking of wildlife in Kenya.

Lodwar, June 19 -- The U.S. Ambassador to Kenya Robert F. Godec visited members of the Turkana Widows Advancement Program at a greenhouse that they operate in Lodwar Town.  The greenhouse is one of several livelihood activities that enable the community members to care for themselves and the orphans and vulnerable children for whom they are caregivers.  USAID funded the members to be trained on how to grow nutritious produce for consumption and sale, and the Ministry of Agriculture provided the greenhouse.  USAID supplied the water tank to irrigate the greenhouse crops.
