Due to climate change, a large number of desperate Kenyans have settled illegally in the country's parks and are deforesting large areas to make them suitable for cultivation and cattle-grazing. Sadly cutting down the trees is helping to lower the already small amount of rain the area receives every year. So far, Kenya has added fencing and armed guards to help protect the parks, but these measures do little to address the underlying problem of food scarcity and climate change. It is unclear what Kenya can do to address climate change, given that global warming can be partly attributed to developed nations overuse of ecological resources.
