Abstract

The article describes development research conducted by the Kenya Woodfuel Development Program (KWDP) in Kakamega District in western Kenya. KWDP is concerned with alleviating the domestic fuelwood crisis in one of Kenya's most densely populated areas. Research has followed a line of increasingly detailed investigations at progressively more localized sites. The first part of the article describes a district-wide land-use survey based on aerial photography and a questionnaire survey of more than 500 households. The second part brings into focus the situation experienced by individual households. On-farm tree-growing practices indicate a strong potential for agroforestry, but the real issue seems to lie in the differing ways men and women perceive the problem.
