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.
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. Referencehttp://www.reuters.com/article/environmentNews/idUSTRE57B3BU20090812 http://www.capitalfm.co.ke/news/Local/Experts-warn-Kenya-on-climate-change-5592.html http://www.nation.co.ke/News/-/1056/644598/-/um72n0/-/
