Toward solving the global environmental problems, challenges not only in developed countries but also in developing countries are important. Thus, in developing countries, there are many projects including development assistance and private investment, for the approach to environmental problems at regional and national level. On the other hand, there is little information from the bottom-up approach on the impact of projects about environmental issues to the local community, local inhabitants and landscape. In this presentation, we show some example such as geothermal and water management project with large scale investment in the pastoral areas of Kenya. And we want to think about how we can advance cooperation with local society in this area.
