A new GEF-funded project supported by the United Nations Environment Programme is aiming to restore the health of Kenya’s Malindi-Sabaki estuary while creating new economic opportunities for local residents. The initiative is part of the Strategic Action Programme for the Protection of the Western Indian Ocean from Land-Based Sources and Activities project (WIOSAP), executed by the Nairobi Convention.
