Sustainable and responsible natural resource exploitation and conservation through ecosystem base management.
Under this thematic area we work with local communities to empower them through training and advocacy to contribute to food security, and get them involved in the negotiations and decisions made on exploitation of natural resources.
Sustainable Agriculture and Food Security
The objective is to increase agricultural production using appropriate technologies and enhance development of agricultural value chains and market access, leading to enhanced food security.

Under this Thematic Area, RESTECH in collaboration with Nagasaki University, Maseno University, Moi University and Kenya Marine and Fisheries Research Institute (KMFRI) has implemented The Lake Victoria Comprehensive Research for Development (LAVICORD) Project.
The overall purpose of the project was to enhance knowledge and apply modern technology for enhanced fisheries production, water quality and ecosystem integrity sources of livelihood.
