There are 150 forest stations in Kenya and each forest station is expected to have one CFA.
The network started, with the key aim to adopt a common approach to Participatory Forest Management (PFM) as stipulated in the new forest Act 2005.
The networks links CFAs to each other, and to NGOs and research institutions at the national and international level, thereby promoting improved access to information, sharing of experiences and joint action on issues of common interest.
The network seeks to enable FACs to exploit forest resources and equitably share the benefits of conservation and sustainable natural resource management, through a pro-poor approach, emphasizing the interests and rights of poorer households and other marginalized groups within the community, notably women.
