The cabinet Secretary for Environment Prof Judi Wakhungu, has urged mobile telephone companies to step up stakeholders education before installing radio frequency equipment that were a source of public health concern.

She said that by involving the stakeholders in decision making, the mobile telephony companies would enhance public confidence and acceptability.

The CS called on the companies to adhere to the recommended Electro Magnetic Frequency (EMF) radiation limits by the International Commission on Non-Ionizing Radiation Protection Board, in order to assure Kenyans of safe usage of mobile phones.

Prof. Wakhungu made the remarks in speech read on her behalf by the Secretary of Administration in her Ministry,  Mr. William Kiprono, during the launch of a safety booklet by Safaricom mobile telephone Company on electromagnetic frequency at a Nairobi hotel.

She said “the use of telephones was rising dramatically in Kenya with the active mobile phone users estimated at 37.8 million,  while a whopping 4.77 billion people across the world use mobile phones leaving no doubt as to how central the mobile phone has become in today’s life”.

Prof Wakhungu noted that as the number of users grows, telecommunication companies are increasing their base stations in a bid to provide the best customer experience. The World Health Organization estimates that over 1.4 million base stations exist worldwide and the number is increasing significantly with the introduction of third generation technology.

Further according to a Green Power for Mobile market analysis report for East Africa, as of 2012, Kenya had the highest number of base stations at 5,565 sites the CS added.

Owing to the companies’ dependency on radio frequency fields to send, receive calls and data via the nearest base station, there has been growing uncertainties globally on possible health risks as a result of electromagnetic radiation from using mobile phones and living near base stations the CS added.

She noted that with the current development of the telephony in the world, companies would best discharge their corporate responsibility by minding their customer’s health through various innovative ways.

The Electronic magnetic Frequency safety booklet has been developed by Safaricom, National Environment Management Authority and the Communications Authority.

There is need for urgent solutions because Kenya is currently going through a period of rapid economic growth characterized by significant investment in infrastructural development, thus putting pressure on our resources and the environment. “We should proactively work with partners such as East African Wildlife Society (EAWLS) within the appropriate framework in integrating the needs of conservation at the planning stage of these development projects,”  Cabinet  Secretary prof. Judi Wakhungu has said.

Speaking in Nairobi where she officiated celebrations to mark the 60th anniversary of the “East African Wildlife Society “(EAWLS), Wakhungu noted that since it’s inception in 1961, the society has contributed a lot to conservation in Kenya by electing most of the fences as a way of protecting Wildlife and reducing human wildlife conflicts.

Further, the CS added, EAWLS has also been very instrumental in saving the almost extinct Roan Antelope that are now thriving in Ruma National park. More recently, the work of EAWLS has seen an MOU being signed between the Government of Kenya and Tanzania to reduce illegal cross –border trade in timber.

Wakhungu also commended the EAWLS for their formation and building of Community based Natural Resource Management Associations as the Community Forest Associations, beach Management units, county natural resources networks, water resource users association and community conservancies. They have done this in realization that communities are the custodians of these resources and their participation therefore is key to ensuring sustainability.

Those who also attended the event are Chinese   Ambassador to Kenya Dr. Liu Xianfa, Minister of Foreign Affairs and Trade in the Government of Hungary Dr. Istvan Mikola and Chairman  EAWLS Board Mr.Joseph Kibe, among others.

The future of humanity depends on wetlands as they are natural shields to protect shorelines, transport, infrastructure, energy, tourism and mitigate communities from vulnerability to climate change impacts, Cabinet Secretary for Environment and Natural Resources, Prof. Judi Wakhungu has said.

In a speech read on her behalf by the Principal Secretary, State Department of Environment, Mr. Charles Sunkuli during the 2017 World Wetlands Day celebrations, Prof. Wakhungu called for maintenance of the ecological integrity of wetlands through conservation and proper management.

This she observed would reinforce their critical role in reducing natural disasters that would otherwise impact on the future of humanity.

Wetlands act as buffers against storms, and relieve both floods and droughts, that would otherwise adversely impact on humans and their livelihood.

The CS noted that her Ministry is championing the development of site specific Wetland Integrated Management Plans that will bring order in the management and sustainable use of wetlands in the country.

Among the Integrated management plans are Wetlands Regulation 2009, Environmental Management and Coordination Act, 2015 and the Wildlife Conservation and Management Act, 2013.

Prof. Wakhungu called on the County Government of Trans Nzoia, and other County Governments, to domesticate these measures through enacting by-laws that will help in the conservation and management of wetlands.

World Wetlands Day is celebrated every year on 2nd February, marking the date in 1971, when the Convention on Wetlands, known as the Ramsar Convention was adopted in the Iranian city of Ramsar, drawing attention to the importance of wetlands. The theme for this year’s World Wetlands Day was ‘Wetlands for Disaster Risk Reduction’, which sought to bring out the role of wetlands in controlling the impacts of natural disasters such as floods, drought, storms, hurricanes and tsunamis.

 

During the celebrations held at Kipsaina in Kitale , also attended by the Trans Nzoia Deputy Governor, Dr.Stanley Kemei, among other dignitaries, the Principal Secretary launched the Environment Policy; Education for Sustainable Development (ESD); Integrated Coastal Zone Management Policy (ICZM); National Wetlands Policy; and National wetlands Strategy.

Africa is one of the Continents which most severely impacted by climate change and extremely vulnerable to climate variability due to its low adaptive capacity, the CS Prof. Judi Wakhungu, Cabinet Secretary Ministry of Environment and Natural Resources has said. Although Africa has in the recent past made progress, development of emerging challenges such as climate change and desertification, natural resource degradation still continues to negatively impact the continent.

Wakhungu said this when she officially opened the first Regional Forum on African Initiative for Combating Desertification and strengthening Resilience to Climate Change in the Horn of Africa, held at the Kenya Forest Research Institute (KEFRI) headquarters in Nairobi.

CS said that the Forum is a reaffirmation of African people’s commitment to turning climate change and other environmental challenges into opportunities because the current negative trends in land and forest degradation are not able to guarantee food and water security, generate viable income and cope with the impacts of climate change and desertification.

The Forum was a follow up of two previous events on Preparatory Meeting of TICAD VI Side Event on African Initiative for Combating Desertification and the Launch of the African Initiative during the TICAD VI Summit which was held in August 2016 in Nairobi. This was the first time the Forum was being hosted on the African soil since its inception in 1993, she added.

IMG_4392The CS said that this meeting has come at a time when Kenya is experiencing drought due to depressed rains which were expected at the end of last year. To reverse these negative trends, the CS noted that Kenya had put in place robust measures which included sustainable afforestation and reforestation, encouraging agroforestry and reducing greenhouse gases by restoring the country’s forest cover to at least 10% by the year 2020.

In achieving Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), Wakhungu said, the country should adopt an integrated landscape approach of embracing urgent and collaborative action to restore, protect and sustainably manage our forestry resources, woodlands and agricultural landscape.

On her part, he Principal Secretary Dr. Margaret Mwakima who accompanied the CS, thanked development partners and in particular JICA for their timely vision and consistency in supporting environment and development initiatives within the dry land ecosystems and particularly the African Initiative.

“Evidently, climate change is real. Therefore, combating desertification to strengthen resilience to climate change is key and inevitable in the Sahel and Horn of Africa.” The PS added.

The Forum brought together delegates from seven African Countries namely Djibouti, Eritrea, Ethiopia, Somali, South Sudan, Sudan and Kenya. It is also being attended by delegates from Japan which is a development partner and the Sahel Region who are involved in natural resource management for the benefit of communities.

The Principal Secretary Dr. Margaret Mwakima has said that the current drought that is affecting most parts of Kenya has been caused by climatic change and global warming. “ the only solution to this trend of climatic change is tree planting which can also be done during rainy  seasons” PS remarked.

It is regrettable that the affected areas are experiencing human Wildlife conflicts because the animals are sometimes moving out of their habitat areas because of water and grass. To this, she added, the government has embarked on constructing of electric fences at wildlife demarcated areas to avoid conflicts.

The government has already committed 5.1 million hectares of deforested and degraded forests and other landscapes for restoration by the year 2030. This commitment is directly linked for the National Determined Contribution to climate change (NDC) and the national forestry aspirations, including the minimum 10 % forest cover.

In this case therefore, the country is exploring a wide range of options, including policy and Institutional reforms and investments to protect the existing forests, restore degraded forest ecosystems and to increase forest cover across the country.

Mwakima added the government of Kenya, through the Ministry of Environment and Natural Resources and County Governments, are working as a team in rehabilitating our water towers to improve the quality of ecosystem services through increased forest cover, improved landscape and natural resources management. This will eradicate poverty through enhancing the productivity of ecosystem services of Kenyan’s critical ecosystems and enhancing resilience to climate change of water sources.

PS Mwakima said this during the burial of her driver senior Sgt. Asbel Kipkorir Koech, which was done at his home Magongi, Segero in Uasin Gishu County. Asbel died on 14th Jan 2017at Nairobi West Hospital while undergoing treatment.

Challenges of solid waste - Principal Secretary, State  Department of Env, Charles Sunkuli with Kajiado leaders  touring the Ngong dumpsite before ordering for its clossure.

Challenges of solid waste – Principal Secretary, State Department of Env, Charles Sunkuli with Kajiado leaders touring the Ngong dumpsite before ordering for its clossure.

The Ministry of Environment and Natural resources has launched a Waste management programme whose strategy is to have Zero Waste in future. This will be done by promoting resource recovery to ensure a clean environment.

A National Steering Committee with representation from key sectors from the national and county governments is in place to spearhead the programme and promote sound management of waste using various structures.  Religious organizations are also involved to ensure that every member of the society plays their role in proper waste management.

‘Cleaning of the environment is the responsibility of each one of us and should not be left to the Government alone.  It is a critical issue that requires concerted effort from every citizen of this great country to succeed’, said Charles Sunkuli, Principal Secretary in the department when he officially opened a workshop on Solid Waste Management in Lukenya.

The Programme will start off with the Ngong Dumpsite project that is spearheaded by the Kajiado County Government as a pilot project. The aim is to have the project demonstrate how to have a sanitary land-fill, and decommission a dumpsite in a town with appropriate waste management technology.

‘This is a clear case of an organized value chain and this committee will use it as a model for other urban centers in the country to get dump sites out of the town center’, said Sunkuli when he visited the site on a fact finding mission.

The County Government has already identified land for the project and the Ministry has held discussions with The National Treasury and identified financial resources for the same. The Italian Government is also willing to offer financial support to this noble project.

During the workshop, the Principal Secretary tasked the Committee to look at all existing legislations and regulations, review them and see if any changes are required, indicate time frames and make recommendations. To enforce the laws, the police will work closely with the Judiciary and make recommendations on what else is required to enforce the laws. Already, the Judiciary has created an Environment and Land Court to be launched in this month and this will go long way in creating awareness and enhance visibility on environment matters and especially during the court users open days.

The Ministry will also embark on a publicity and creation awareness campaign to try to change people’s attitudes and behavior and persuade them to adopt proper habits in sustainable waste management.

The programme which is a flag ship project of the Ministry will ensure sound waste management of all types of waste in the country. It will encourage segregation of waste at source up to the disposal stage among other measures.  It will start with Kajiado County as a pilot project before being rolled out to other counties.

 Unpredictable Climate change will likely increase water insecurity due to erratic rainfall causing challenges in food security and slow recovery by small holder farmers, Principal Secretary for Environment Mr. Charles Sunkuli has said.

 The PS further called for concerted efforts to manage land, water and biodiversity in a bid to address food insecurity in order to safeguard the country’s long term potential of agricultural productivity and water supply.

 Mr. Sunkuli made the remarks in a speech read on his behalf by the Environment Secretary Dr. Alice Kaudia during the launch of Upper Tana Nairobi Water Fund yesterday at a Nairobi hotel. The project aims at conserving water catchment basin thereby improving the ecosystem and quality of life of local communities.

 The more than sh. 1.2 billion financing from the Global Environment Fund (GEF), Government of Kenya and local stakeholders will support about 21,00 rural small holder families to adopt climate smart farming that is expected to stabilize and restore ecosystems along the Upper Tana basin which is the source of water supply for Nairobi city and its environs.

The PS observed that forests and wetlands in the project area played an important role in maintaining water quality and quantity alongside providing space where runoff water and sediment are stored and filtered naturally.

However, due to significant growth of the agriculture sector in the area, sedimentation is reducing the capacity of reservoirs. The Upper Tana Nairobi Water Fund therefore, is expected to work with public and private sector partners, to establish the Water Fund, which will act as a sustainable financing mechanism to support integrated natural resource management approaches in the catchment area.

Further the project is expected to boost water quality and quantity for both upstream and downstream users, climate change adaptation and resilience capabilities among other benefits.
