Kenya’s Nandi County turns to bamboo to save threatened wetland

Bamboo has been nicknamed ‘green gold’ in some countries around the world. This is due to its economic benefits, its vast range of uses as well as its contribution to global environmental conservation efforts.

In Kenya, bamboo farming has not reached levels seen in other parts, especially Asia. But this may change soon, as more Kenyans continue to discover its importance. In Nandi County for instance, authorities have embarked on a conscious drive to get more people to engage in bamboo farming for its economic value as well as for its conservation abilities.
