Coinciding with the hosting of the 24th Climate Outlook Forum for the Greater Horn of Africa, in which climate-related issues such as serious drought and drying rivers were acknowledged, Kenya’s government has announced a vast tree-planting endeavor.

Seeking to replenish felled tree areas with a 10 percent forest cover nationwide, the plan is to plant 7.6 billion trees over the next 20 years.

Environment Minister John Michuki stated that in total, 4.1 million hectares of land would be re-forested. Our accolades Minister Michuki and Kenya for your dedication to returning your nation to a lush forested land. Blessed be such efforts in showing respect for all life on our planet.
