More than 5000 masks were distributed to the partners of the Mikoko Project on mangrove conservation in Lamu.

Sustainable development cooperation incentives are first concerned by the sanitary threat over capacity building activites which include research, training and education as well as exchange of knowledge.

As soon as the COVID-19 started to hit Kenya, the FSPI-Mikoko project, led by French research institutes IRD and CIRAD and Kenya Forest Service ensured the acquisition and distribution of masks among all partner women community groups of the project in Lamu, on the Kenyan coast.
