Dr. Thomas Buchholz, Senior Scientist at SIG, will be in Kenya this spring to provide assistance in biomass supply chain management to the Kenya Tea Development Agency (KTDA). He is collaborating with the Strathmore Energy Research Centre based at Strathmore University in Nairobi on this task. KTDA is in need to provide a more secure, cost-effective, and sustainable fuelwood supply over the long-term. To meet those needs, KTDA is looking at various alternatives and monitoring programs for their currently small-scale farmer based fuelwood sourcing strategy.
