"If the Mau Forest is destroyed, Kenya will die." This is the stark message of the scientist and Nobel Peace Prizewinner Professor Wangari Maathai from the University of Nairobi. Poverty and climate change are threatening one of East Africa's most valuable forestry areas that supplies vast natural areas, metropolises and agricultural land with water. Therefore, LIFE - Faculty of Life Sciences at University of Copenhagen - is now participating in an ambitious research initiative.
