LWF is a dynamic, membership driven organization located 1.2km from Nanyuki town. Members’ subscription to the Forum is a vital vehicle in the realisation of the goals and aspirations of small holders, community groups, conservancies and large land owners focusing on integrated natural resources management. We serve youth groups and schools in an effort to inform future generations about the values of sustainable land use and management.
Founded in 1992 over a common set of natural resource management issues, the Forum has grown to include 6000 members. Many of them belong to community natural resources management groups such as Community Forest Associations, Water Resource User Associations, Wildlife Clubs and Conservancies of group ranches. Our model is effective because we believe that security of tenure and property rights, defended under the law, is a cornerstone of sustainable and wise land use. We work to bring sound technical solutions to common land use and conservation challenges, and we aim to link public and private services and funding to Laikipian needs, both internally and with our neighbours.
