Its been one year since we started the implementation of the SEMA project in Kenya and Tanzania and we are excited to share how amid the extreme weather patterns and human-wildlife conflicts, communities living adjacent to Serengeti National Park in Tanzania and Maasai Mara National Reserve in Kenya are taking initiative to conserve and protect the ecosystem, adopting sustainable livelihood options and peacefully co-existing with the wildlife.

The SEMA project is an Initiative for the conservation of Serengeti – Mara ecosystem. The project aims to contribute to conservation of Serengeti-Mara transboundary ecosystems through empowering local communities to adopt sustainable livelihoods and enhancing regional cooperation in Kenya and Tanzania.
