Conservation Programmes - Wetlands

Wetlands in East Africa continue to suffer a steady decline in their health and extent, as a result of encroachment, pollution and unsustainable utilization.

EAWLS efforts have led to the adoption of a draft Wetland Policy by the Government of Kenya but a lot more needs to be done.

EAWLS is focused on the piloting of wetland guidelines in Tana Delta, Lake Naivasha, Lake Elementaita and Lake Yala.
