The indigenous Sengwer people have been hunters and gatherers in Kenya’s Embobut Forest and Cherengani Hills since ancient times. But unlike most traditional communities in Kenya, they were never given title to their land. The Kenya Forest Service has in the past tried to evict them from what is now a Forest Reserve. Violence erupted again in January 2018, when Sengwer herders were shot and killed. This story looks at the Sengwer’s struggle for land rights, exposes illegal logging by officials, and examines the challenges of inclusion when conservation and development collide with indigenous opposition. A film by Joan Kabugu.

Pollinators are responsible for the production of various crops, fruits, fibers, medicinal plants, and the regeneration of wild plants. However, many farmers lack the knowledge to identify the beneficial insects from damaging pests. At the same time, indiscriminate use of pesticides as clearing techniques are contributing to their decline. There are serious implications in pollinator destruction for food security, livelihoods, human health, industries, and the global economy. This film showcases some of the pollinators and highlights how important it is for scientists and farmers to work together for conservation and better yields and incomes. A film by Martha Mutiso & Caroline Njoki.
