First prize in Volkswagen 2011 Calendar photo competition

Our IFLEA project won the first prize of the photo competition for the Volkswagen Stiftung 2011 calender “Natural Resources Research in Africa”. Actually DITSL (the German Institute for Tropical and Subtropical Agriculture) initiated the competition and organized the calender. All 12 project under the Volkswagen Stiftung programme submitted pictures for the calender.

The picture I submitted was from the field research visit with Emily in Ramogi and Mau Forest June 2010. The title picture of the calender (which won the prize) shows tree stumps in Mau Forest and Maize fields in the background. That was when we visited the Ogiek indigenous people of that area.
