Our analysis in this first issue in the series covers Karura, Ngong Road and Kiptagich forests and suggests a loss of public resources in excess of Ksh.18.4 billion. The Ndungu Report covers ten other forests as well as other public land, ranging from road reserves to cemeteries to public toilets and even State House land.

    Land degradation is caused by removal of vegetation cover and subsequent fertility loss. Frequent
    assessment of land use changes and their effects on soil and vegetation in ranches is critical to their
