Abstract:

This report is prepared for the Amboseli Task Force responsible for presenting an integrated landuse plan for the Amboseli ecosystem. The landuse plan aims at fostering sustainable development in south-eastern Kajiado while ensuring the conservation of wildlife in Amboseli National Park and the larger ecosystem. The Task Force, chaired by the Amboseli and Tsavo Group Ranch Conservation Association (ATGRCA), was convened in March 2004 by a workshop of some 70 landowners, community leaders, Kenya Wildlife Service, government agencies and non-government conservation organizations. The Task Force was charged with submitting a draft plan to the workshop representatives in 2005. Several technical committees were established to assist the Task Force with the plan.

Key Words: Amboseli Task Force, landuse plan, ecosystem, wildlife conservation, giraffe
