Mr. Lestan Kimiri-Project Manager
Lestan is driven by a passion for forest conservation. He was raised in a Mukogodo Forest community and studied intensively about community forest associations. His Master’s thesis was based on the establishment of traditional boundaries for forest resources and forest users.
Mr. Kimiri envisions working well with rangers and the Mukogodo community at large to protect the Forest and forest resources. He aims to assemble multi-sectoral teams to grow trees, rehabilitate degraded lands, and to protect the Mukogodo Forest from further destruction. He now plays a major role in the FAO/GEF Project support to the Mukogodo and will play a major role in the review of the new Participatory Forest Management Plan.
