Semi-circular bunds

The Wyss Academy for Nature has joined forces with the Navilla-Naramat Youth Conservation Group and the Naibunga Community Conservancy to implement a series of initiatives towards the sustainable regeneration of degraded grasslands in northern Kenya. One of these initiatives is the use of semi-circular bunds, a regreening technique currently being applied in severely degraded sites like Il Motiok and Koija Group Ranch, which hold significant potential for regeneration. The bunds act to rehabilitate degraded land by reducing the flow of water allowing it to infiltrate into the ground to increase soil moisture.
