Eco-bursaries as incentives for conservation around Arabuko-Sokoke Forest, Kenya

Incentives used to encourage local residents to support conservation range from integrated conservation and development Projects (ICDPs), which indirectly connect improved livelihoods with biodiversity protection, to direct payments for ecosystem services (PES). A unique hybrid between these two strategies, Arabuko-Sokoke Schools and Ecotourism Scheme (ASSETS), provides secondary-school bursaries to encourage stewardship of a biodiverse, highly imperiled Kenyan forest. Using household surveys and semi-structured interviews, we assess the effectiveness of ASSETS by comparing attitudes and perceptions toward the forest among scheme beneficiaries and non-beneficiaries.
