For quite some years, communities living in the Mt. Kenya conservation area have benefited from the several ecosystem services found within it such as; food, water, biodiversity, tourism and recreation, fuel and energy, timber and housing materials just to mention a few of them. This study analyzed the socio-economic benefits that resulted from sustainable management of these resources and also assessed the state of the environment for the past twenty years.
