Maps from Nature's Benefits in Kenya -- Chapter 8: The Upper Tana: Patterns of Ecosystem Services and Poverty. Examines maps of various ecosystem services and poverty patterns in a single region -- the upper watersheds of the Tana River -- to demonstrate how such maps can help to highlight the relationships among people, ecosystems, and poverty.

  • What This Chapter Shows: This chapter examines maps of various ecosystem services and poverty patterns in a single region—the upper watersheds of the Tana River—to demonstrate how such maps can help to highlight the relationships among people, ecosystems, and poverty. After providing a brief overview of landforms, population distribution, and poverty patterns in the upper Tana, the spatial relationships between selected ecosystem indicators and poverty in three topic areas: water-related ecosystem services; food-related ecosystem services; and biodiversity- and wood-related ecosystem services are discussed. The chapter concludes with a detailed summary that highlights poverty for six selected ecosystem indicators and suggests possible future analyses based on the patterns observed.
