Save the Elephants and Elephant Voices.
This document has been prepared at the invitation of the Narok County Government Department of Lands, Urban Development and Physical Planning and the County Assembly Committee on Natural Resources at a stakeholders forum on spatial plan development and resource mobilisation held in Narok on 16 - 17 October 2014. Kenya’s development blueprints - Vision 2030, the Constitution of Kenya (2010) and the Millennium Development Goals (MDG) - recognise the importance of sustainable use of natural resources, reduction of biodiversity loss, and maintenance of ecosystem processes. Vision 2030 identifies securing of wildlife dispersal areas and migratory routes/corridors and pathways as significant ingredients of sustainable eco-tourism. Biodiversity and ecosystem conservation contribute immensely to Kenya’s national economy with close to 80% of tourism earnings attributed to wildlife.
