Kenya to plant 2 billion tree seedlings by 2022 to increase forest cover

Kisumu – Kenya said on Thursday it has stepped up efforts to foster public-private partnerships to boost ongoing environmental conservation efforts.

Kariako Tobiko, environment and forestry cabinet secretary said such move guarantees the success of ongoing environmental conservation initiatives including increasing forest cover to at least 10 percent by planting two billion tree seedlings by the year 2022. 

“Our engagements with the private sector have been very successful in recent months and we have adopted a Leave No-One Behind approach to ensure the sustainability of environmental conservation efforts,” Tobiko said in a speech read on his behalf in the lakeside city of Kisumu by acting National Environmental Management Authority (NEMA) director-general, Mamo Boru Mamo at a regional water conference. 

Already, he said, public-private partnerships have begun to generate positive returns with the private sector contributing more than 10 million tree seedlings in various parts of the country for the ongoing national reforestation campaigns. Various corporate organisations, Tobiko noted, are also actively involving their workforce in environmental regeneration programs.
