Why plant papyrus?

These were some of the questions raised by participants at the start of a sensitization workshop on habitat restoration through planting papyrus organized by Nature Kenya in Siaya County in February 2016.

By the end of the workshop, participants had understood the importance of planting papyrus and agreed on a strategy for planting.
