Strategic Environmental Assessment for Kenya Market-Led Aquaculture Programme

Advance Africa, in collaboration with Golder Associates Africa, conducted a Strategic Environmental Assessment (SEA) for the Kenya Market-Led Aquaculture Programme (KMAP), with the purpose of ensuring that proposed KMAP activities complied with national environmental regulations as well as international best practice.

Advance Africa undertook a comprehensive literature review of national environmental regulations and international best practices, followed by a technical assessment of environmental risks associated with aquaculture production of tilapia and catfish. In addition, Standard Operating Procedures were developed to guide the implementation of the KMAP project and ensure that operations are performed in an environmentally-friendly manner.
