40 days - 40 grantees - 40 stories from the Eastern Afromontane hotspot

The Critical Ecosystem Partnership Fund (CEPF) started investing in the Eastern Afromontane hotspot in September 2012. Since then, CEPF has funded more than 80 projects across the hotspot. On 26 July 2015 in Nairobi, Kenya, CEPF hosted a CEPF grantee experience exchange event that brought together 40 managers of 40 CEPF-funded projects, implemented at Key Biodiversity Areas across the Eastern Afromontane hotspot. These CEPF grantees shared knowledge, skills and lessons learned (see our video about the event here).

To build up to the event, we provided  40 mini-stories of 40 CEPF-funded projects in 40 days.

See below to learn about the projects and grantees in the Eastern Afromontane hotspot.
