Provide baseline data on critically endangered kipunji monkey and Rungwe galago that will be the basis of monitoring their population trends and geographical distribution in the Njombe forests Key Biodiversity Area (KBA). This information will drive specific strategies to improve the condition and function of the forests, looking at the existing forest management plans. It will provide insight to the local community on the value of the forest and importance of protecting the KBA, hence safeguarding ecosystem services such as water catchment and crop pollination.

Strategic Direction: 2 Improve the protection and management of the KBA network throughout the hotspot.
