In Kenya, the National Environment Management Authority (NEMA) is adopting a project to build an electric fence between Tsavo East National Park and Makueni County in the south-east of the country. The 20 km long solar-powered fence, estimated to cost 970,000 euros, is intended to reduce human-elephant conflict.
