Agriculture is the engine of economic growth, and a valuable source of income for most Kenyans. Most farmers work without modern seeds and technology or adequate financial or extension services. About 75 percent of Kenyans derive all or part of their livelihoods from the sector and it accounts for 18 percent of the gross domestic product.  Only 20 percent of the country’s land is arable, and maximum yields have not been reached in these areas, leaving considerable potential for increase in productivity.

Kenya’s five major forest “water towers” – Aberdares, Cherangani Hills, Mau Complex, Mt. Elgon and Mt. Kenya – provide invaluable services to Kenya’s people, economy, and wildlife. Approximately 75 percent of the country’s renewable water resources come from these vital national assets which are threatened by irregular and poorly planned settlements, overgrazing, illegal forest resource extraction, and the conversion of forests into farms. This degradation, along with fluctuating rainy seasons and extreme weather events, are contributing to a growing water crisis.
