The Kenya Government and the European Union (EU) have entered in an  EU funded programme – the Water Towers Protection and Climate Change Mitigation and Adaptation, to support the eradication of poverty through enhancing the productivity of ecosystem services in two of Kenya’s five water towers – Mt Elgon and Cherangany, together with its ecosystems covering eleven counties. The programme is a six years programme with a duration from 2014-2020, and with a total support of €31,000,000 corresponding to KES 3.6 billion.

Launching the programme at the Hill School in Eldoret, the Cabinet Secretary for Environment and Natural Resources Prof Judi Wakhungu, who was accompanied by the European Union Ambassador H.E. Stefano Dejak noted that, the  programme will improve the quality and quantity of ecosystem services provided by the two water towers, through increased forest cover, improved landscape and natural resource management / waste management systems, that will lead to increased benefits to communities from forest, agriculture and agro-forestry land use systems.

Addressing the guests during the launch  who included the Governor, Elgeyo Marakwet County, Eng. Tolgos, Principal Secretary, Natural Resources Dr. Margaret Mwakima and representatives of the eleven counties within the ecosystem catchment, Prof. Wakhungu noted that, the Water Towers Programme will help preserve the environment for present as well as future Kenyan generations, while improving the lives of the communities through ecologically and economically sustainable land use systems and livelihood interventions, hence  providing a  win-win solution for both the community and the environment. Thus, the programme is a key step to taking effective action in tackling Climate Change through sustainable ecosystem services.

On his part, the European Union Ambassador H.E. Stefano A. Dejak said the EU supports projects that ensure the highest environmental protection.

The programme is expected to enhance resilience to climate change by covering the Mt. Elgon and the Cherangany Hills, two of Kenya’s critical ecosystems, and will be coordinated by the Ministry of Environment and Natural Resources, with the Kenya Forest Service, Kenya Water Towers Agency, Kenya Wildlife Service, Kenya Forestry Research Institute and the National Climate Change Secretariat as well as the eleven counties as the implementing agencies.

Kenyans have been urged to intensify efforts to combat desertification and restore degraded land.

Speaking at Pap Sori playground in Migori County during the World Day to Combat Desertification (WDCD), the Cabinet Secretary noted that land degradation neutrality cannot be achieved without inclusive cooperation among key actors.

She observed that the Theme for this year’s WDCD – ‘Inclusive cooperation for achieving Land Degradation Neutrality’ with the Slogan: ‘Protect Earth, Restore Land – Engage People’ advocates for the importance of inclusive cooperation to restore and rehabilitate degraded land and contribute towards achieving the overall Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)

She called upon development partners and all key actors to pull efforts together to realize land degradation neutrality as it is the most cost effective way of fighting hunger and also coping with climate change, securing water and energy resources and promoting inclusive growth.

This year’s celebrations were held in Pap Sori, Karungu Division, Nyatike Sub County in Migori County. This is a semi –arid area characterized by prolonged dry spells and short erratic rains. Environmental degradation has resulted into severe climatic changes whose effects are being felt by the residents. Other characteristics of environmental degradation experienced here include floods, deforestation, soil erosion, mining and high population density.

The CS also observed that the cost of land restoration per hectare had increased and noted that the government had put into place necessary interventions to address this. Some of the interventions include: Enactment of the National Land Policy, National Climate Change Response Strategy and Action Plan and its Secretariat, establishment of the National Drought Management Authority (NDMA) among others.

Moreover, the Ministry has been very instrumental in the preparation of Environment Policy and review of relevant policies to be in line with the Constitution. It is envisaged that these initiatives will lead to improved community participation in environmental planning and management as well as strengthened environmental governance and partnerships.

IMG_9439A Green Economy Partnership (GEP) project has officially been launched at Ligodho Pilot Site in Homa Bay to start the production of Biomass Briquettes from Agro-Industrial residues. Presiding over the launch of the project, the Cabinet Secretary (Cs) for Environment and Natural Resources Prof. Judi Wakhungu who was accompanied by the Principal Secretary for Natural Resources Dr. Margaret Mwakima said Kenya Forest Research Institute (KEFRI) and Gum Arabic and Resins Association (GARA) together with Royal Norwegian Society Development (Norgesvel) were to implement the project as from 1st May 2015 to 30th October 2017.

The project is funded by the Nordic Climate Facility (NCF) through Nordic Environment Finance Corporation (NEFCO) to a tune of Kshs. 62 million and Kshs. 7 million from the Kenyan Government.

The CS said that this project will be used to test efficient methods of producing fuel wood energy from sugarcane bagasse with the aim of saving more firewood from remaining scattered trees in Homa bay County.

“Lack of proper disposal of Agro-Industrial residues is a major cause of green House gas (GHG) emission in the agricultural sector, just because the sugarcane bagasse generated annually is heaped and left to decay around the mills or burned in open fields” said the CS.

She added that Green Economy Partnership (GEP) project will combine both climate change mitigation and adaptation strategies in off-grid sugarcane farming systems and will aim at developing and implementing business models to stimulate the growth of green rural enterprises.

IMG_9434The project will benefit the residents in providing knowledge transfer and job opportunities as women and youths will be involved in bio-enterprises for socio-economic benefits.

GEP project will engage Migori Jua Kali co-operative union engineering services to fabricate efficient carbonization kilns and briquetting machines based on agreed designs in improved KEFRI models. The union will also train beneficiary groups on how to operate and maintain the kilns and briquetting machines.

The Ps Dr. Margaret Mwakima  on her part said that the Launch of Green Economy Partnership (GEP) project at Ligodho pilot site  in Homa Bay for production of charcoal from sugarcane  Bagasse is in line with the Ministry’s mandate of promoting  social economic pillar for a healthy and clean environment. The Ps said that KEFRI’s Research Programme has identified the existing opportunities in the sugar belt region and is now researching on better environmental management.

Mwakima said that GEP project will therefore address the challenges of a clean and healthy environment by creating wealth through carbonization of biomass briquettes from sugarcane bagasse with the aim of reducing greenhouse gas emissions in the sugar belt regions of Kenya.

There is need for lasting solutions to  the human wildlife conflict in order to reduce deaths, injuries and damage to property. This was said by the Principal Secretary for Natural Resources Dr. Margaret Mwakima when she met the Chairs of the 47 County Wildlife Compensation Committees at the Ministry of Environment and Natural Resources Headquarters, NHIF building on the 31st May 2016.

Noting that “You can’t equate life to anything”, the Ps reiterated that no amount of monetary compensation was enough to pay for a lost life.

This meeting was done to address among other issues ways of breaching the gap between the Ministry and the local communities and dealing with matters negatively affecting the committees in their operations at the Counties.

The Ps promised the chairs to make a follow-up with the Salaries and Remuneration Commission in regard to the chairs’ honoraria, per diem and sitting allowances. She said that though the Ministry had officially written to the Commission there was need for a follow-up in order to justify some of the allowances.

The wildlife Regulations Act was also discussed where it was agreed that there was need to fast-track its operationalization but only if the act would be subjected to public participation before the document would be gazetted as required by the New Constitution of 2010.

On the provision of office space the meeting agreed that there was need to look for more funding to construct offices in order for the committees to operate effectively. The sitting also explored ways addressing the backlog of compensation cases still pending at the Counties with huge amounts of money needed to compensate those affected.

Dr. Mwakima said that the Ministry was looking for funding to provide water within the parks to avoid the movement of animals outside the parks. She gave the example of Aruba dam in Tsavo East National Park where the Chinese had been approached to help in desilting to boost the water volumes.

The meeting was also attended by among others Deputy Director Wildlife Conservation Dr.Joash Osoro and Deputy Director Kenya Wildlife Service Mr. Michael Kipkeu.

DSCN2651The residents of Laikipia have now everything to smile for after the launch of the erection of an electric elephant perimeter fence to solve the menace of human wildlife conflict in the area. Officiating the launch, the Cabinet Secretary Prof. Judi Wakhungu said that the human-wildlife conflict is now a thing of the past and assured the residents that there will be no more crop destruction, property damage and loss of human lives to small holder farmers anymore.

“The human-elephant conflict has been an enormous challenge in Laikipia which is a home of an estimated 6,300 elephants. Crop damage, property destruction and loss of human lives have been the daily occurrence and the only way to address HEC is the erection of the electric fence.” Wakhungu remarked.

The minister said that the government through the support of Space for Giants will rehabilitate 163 Kms of West Laikipia fence to a more appropriate and robust design that will keep farmers and their crops safe.

The CS also added that the electric fence is a demonstration of Kenya’s commitment to the Giants club summit’s inauguration recently by president Uhuru Kenyatta in ensuring people and wildlife live alongside each other for generations to come.

DSC_1024CS said the Laikipia Elephant fence therefore is a creation of a big conservation impact in protecting one of Kenya’s most important elephant population as well as other endangered species.

The fence, cabinet secretary added, will also be an improvement to food security to over 215,000 people as 2 million acres of small holder crops shall be protected.

Governor Joshua Irungu who was also present said that the fence project was meant to make people live in a harmonious way with wild animals adding that the only challenge for the fence was vandalism which He challenged neighboring communities  to protect and maintain.

Present also during the launch of the fence were; Senator G. G Kariuki and Marks, the CEO- Space for Giants.

The Cabinet Secretary in the Ministry of Environment and Natural Resources, Prof. Judi Wakhungu , has lauded the Dutch government for its continued partnering with the Kenya government , in combating trade in illegal wildlife products, which is pushing species to the brink of extinction, hence  robbing countries of their natural heritage.

Speaking in her office, when she received the Netherlands Minister for Agriculture, Hon. Martjin Van Dam, Prof. Wakhungu, who was accompanied by her two Principal Secretaries Dr. Margaret Mwakima of Natural Resources and Mr. Charles Sunkuli of Environment, rooted for the two governments to come together in partnership to find common solutions to conservation challenges, noting that, an integrated and universal approach is needed to secure success and prosperity in the future. Prof. Wakhungu noted that,  with coming into law of the new wildlife act, the Kenya government is already making strides in curbing the destruction of our natural heritage, and called on Netherlands, together with the European Union to support  Kenya’s initiative during the CITES conference to be held in South Africa in September, 2016.

Mr. Martjin Van Dam, who was accompanied by the Netherlands Ambassador to Kenya, H.E. Frans Makken and other embassy officials, expressed his country’s desire to work closely with the Kenya government in tackling the illegal trade in wildlife, which is one of the most critical issues of our time that is profiting international criminal networks.

Kenya needs to change its land use model to retain a competitive advantage of wildlife heritage in the world, Cabinet Secretary for Environment Prof. Judi Wakhungu has said.

She noted that wildlife habitat in the country had been transformed over the years to give way to human settlements, cultivation and pasture for livestock leading to about 50 % loss of wildlife in and outside protected areas.

The CS added that owing to the rapidly growing population currently estimated and 40 million and the projected economic growth rate, the numbers of wildlife were threatened with reduction if measures were not put in place urgently.

Prof.Wakhungu’s sentiments were contained in a message read on her behalf by the principal Secretary for Natural Resources Dr. Margaret Mwakima during the annual World Environment day celebrations held in Nanyuki, Laikipia County. This year’s theme was “Fight against the illegal trade in Wildlife”.

She called for a closer working relationship with communities living near wildlife sanctuaries and the local and international communities to stop the destruction of the country’s wildlife heritage in order to ensure a sustainable future of the diversity.

The CS reaffirmed the government’s commitment to protect wildlife, especially the endangered elephant and rhino species through stringent anti-poaching laws and inter-agency surveillance on trafficking in wildlife trophies which she observed had led to drastic reduction in cases of poaching in the country. She added that the illegal wildlife trade also affected less known species like the sea turtles.

Prof Wakhungu lauded the April 30th 2016, burning of 105 tones of Ivory and 1.35 tones of rhino horns by President Kenyatta adding that the action signaled the world that Kenya was advocating for a total global ban in trade of the endangered species.

The CS urged Kenyans to celebrate all plant and animal species under threat in respective communities and take action to safeguard them for future generation

PS, Dr. Margaret Mwakima with Laikipia Gvnor, Joshua Irungu, DG-NEMA, Geoffrey Wahungu and a member of NEMA board sending a message on conservation during the 2016 WED fetes.

The 2016 World Environment Day National celebrations were held in Nanyuki Town, Laikipia County, with a strong call on conservation of Flora and Fauna in the country and especially the animals that face extinction due to poaching.

In a speech read on her behalf by the Principal Secretary, State Department of Natural Resources, Dr. Margaret Mwakima, the Cabinet Secretary, Ministry of Environment and Natural Resources, Prof. Judi Wakhungu noted that, the country’s population is projected to grow by 70% by 2030 and this, coupled with projected growth of 6%per annum, is expected to contribute to decline in wildlife numbers if measures to protect the wildlife are not urgently put in place and implemented.

Prof. Wakhungu said that, the underlying factors of this loss of the country’s natural heritage are attributed to land use change leading to the transformation of wildlife habitat into human settlements, cultivation and pasture for livestock.

The CS reiterated the need to find land use models that tackle the underlying causes of change, in order to maintain wildlife habitat in the face of population and economic growth.

Addressing the gathering, Laikipia Governor, H.E. Hon. Joshua Irungu noted that, though the county has the second biggest number of animals roaming outside protected areas, the major reason for human wildlife conflict is because of conflict in resource use between people and wildlife, and noted that, his administration is fencing off areas where animals have caused havoc.

The governor revealed that, mega Dams are also being put up in these areas to make sure that wildlife and domestic animals have enough water to alleviate conflict.

The World Environment day was set aside in 1972 by the United Nations to be used as a platform for creating awareness and educating the public on the importance of the environment, while appreciating the achievements made towards its preservation.
