Kenya aims to transform into a newly industrialized, middle-income country, providing a high quality of life to all its citizens in a clean and secure environment by 2030, Principal Secretary in the Ministry of Environment and Natural Resources, Dr. Richard Lesiyampe has said.

In a speech read on his behalf by the Environment Secretary in the Ministry, Dr. Alice Kaudia, during stakeholders forum to validate the Green Economy Strategy Implementation Plan at the Nairobi Sarova Stanley hotel, Dr. Lesiyampe observed that, Green Economy is an important tool for achieving sustainable development and poverty reduction, and a shift in investment to green sectors would lead to an additional 3.1 million people being lifted out of poverty by 2030.

Noting that a transition to a green economy requires an integrated development planning approach from our national and county governments, Dr. Lesiyampe said there is need to mainstream the aspects of green economy model into the overall decision making in Kenya, observing  that, the development of GESIP will contribute in building a transformative development pathway that will be  expected to create more green jobs, accelerate poverty reduction, support sustainable growth and restore environmental health, quality and well-being, among others.
