Virunga Power is building a hydro plant to power this valley of Kenyan farmers MUNTUNGRU COMMUNITY, MERU COUNTY, KENYA: May 31, 2015 - Virunga Power is expanding a micro-hydro power plant (26Kw) on the Mutonga River to a larger grid-tied hydro plant (7.8 Mw) for the Muntungru Community. The region sits at the edge of Mt. Kenya national forest. The population mostly consists of smallholder farmers growing tea, coffee, and vegetables. Most of the inhabitants have no connection to power. The initial structure was built by UNIDO after the community of 1,200 applied for and won a grant. Virunga Power will spend the next two years expanding the project and connecting the community of 3 - 5,000 people to the micro grid by mid 2017. The goal is to provide enough to energy to not only cover lights and the ability to power cell phones, but also to power businesses and farms.

Project: Alliance for sustainable landscapes and markets

In the alliance for sustainable landscapes and markets, supported by USAID and implemented by Rainforest Alliance in Mexico, we are working with coffee producers in Oaxaca and Chiapas to reforest and restore their landscapes.

The State Coordinator of Coffee Producers in Oaxaca (CEPCO) is one of our partners in the alliance. With them, we seek to generate resilient practices that overcome extreme weather and shocks by introducing new coffee species and planting multi species gardens, in order to create a more competitive product for the global market.

With climate smart agriculture implementation, coffee producers are able to strengthen their practices and restore their landscapes by planting more trees to give shadow and nurture their crops and protecting all the biodiversity that the forest inhabit like this beautiful cheeky kinkajou (Potos flavus) in Oaxaca.
