“We owe it to ourselves and to the next generation to conserve the environment so that we can bequeath our children a sustainable world that benefits all.” Wangari Maathai

Introduction                                                                                                                              

When Prof. Wangari Maathai founded the Green Belt Movement in 1977 she sought to respond to the needs of rural Kenyan women who reported that their streams were drying up, their food supply was less secure, and they had to walk further and further to get firewood for fuel, building and fencing.  The everyday hardships that communities faced: poverty, unemployment, environmental degradation, water scarcity, deforestation, and food insecurity, were, Wangari Maathai recognized, symptoms of deeper issues of disempowerment, disenfranchisement, poor governance, inequities and loss of values. She believed that if those working closely with the grassroots were better equipped with the skills, tools and values to influence and change attitudes and practices they would bring about transformation in their communities.

In sub Saharan Africa over 72% of urban and 98% of rural households use wood-fuel for energy and kerosene for lighting. Inefficient lighting and cooking technologies contribute to climate change and degradation of natural resources. This is because trees are cut to provide fuel for cooking and kerosene is used to provide light. They harm human health when indoor air pollutants increase respiratory problems and exacerbate poverty, mostly affecting women and children. The inefficient production and use of biomass for household fuel contributes to deforestation and natural resource degradation, which further exacerbates climate change. Ultimately the livelihoods of millions of families who live near forests and who rely on them for subsistence and incomes is affected.
