This brief describes implementation work under the ICRAF led project “Restoration of degraded land for food security and poverty reduction in East Africa and the Sahel: taking successes in land restoration to scale”. The project is an IFAD-EC funded initiative developing innovative ways to scale land restoration activities through embedding research in development. It does this by collaborating with development programs to systematically test promising restoration options across a range of contexts. In Kenya, the project is working with over 2000 farmers across Kitui, Makueni and Machakos counties to implement on-farm comparisons of various land restoration options, including different tree planting practices and the use of planting basins.
