TNC and KUSSCO: Because sustainable forestry is becoming crucial, it is important to embrace private forests to safeguard our natural forests, achieve 10% forest cover and alleviate economic and energy poverty.Therefore TBPT, TNC, and KUSSCO are working together through the Kuza Miti program to promote commercial forest among farmers in Central highlands. The partnership seeks to eliminate barriers that have been identified as a barrier to investments in commercial forestry. These barriers include:Lack of funding, Lack of Technical Support in best silviculture practices, Access to Land, and Long term Maturity of Trees.
Lack of funding is overcomed by availing low interest loans through KUSSCO, while TBPT provide high quality and fast maturing seedlings.
