Research Topics CRC Future Rural Africa Project A05 Future Roads:

Globally, infrastructural development such as roads are continuously increasing due to the high demand for the mobility of people and goods. These developments have resulted in both positive outcomes and undesirable impacts such as changes in land use, biodiversity loss, and reduced ecosystem services through forest losses. The planning of roads is often a top-down process; visions and aspirations of local communities are often inadequately considered or ignored. In this research project, we want to assess the socio-economic impacts of road development as well as on land-use changes, biodiversity, and soil ecosystem services in the Lake Baringo region, Kenya.
