Kenya is set to host the 6th Tokyo International Conference on African Development (TICAD VI) Summit in Nairobi from 27th – 28th August, 2016.

This is the first time the summit is being held in Africa since TICADs inception in 1993. The conference is expected to build significant momentum for the implementation of the world’s post-2015 development agenda for the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and African Union’s Agenda 2063 development blueprint.

Opening the preparatory meeting for TICAD VI on African Initiative for Combating Desertification to Strengthen Resilience to Climate Change in the Sahel and Horn of Africa, Cabinet Secretary for Environment and Natural Resources, Prof. Judi Wakhungu observed that, Kenya is among the countries that have been selected to pilot on Land Degradation Neutrality baseline survey Initiative, a process geared towards assisting countries in setting national targets. She noted that, as a country, Kenya is keen to promote Sustainable Land Management which covers various aspects of desertification,  land degradation,  biodiversity as well as climate change.

Addressing participants at a workshop at the Kenya Forestry Research Institute (KEFRI) headquarters in Muguga, Prof. Wakhungu noted that, the Land Degradation Neutrality Initiative will build a network where all actors will work together to combat desertification and strengthen resilience to climate change, knowledge sharing and improve access to finance in the region.

She reiterated that this is a platform that affords Africa’s non-state actors space to play a key role in determining key focus points in Africa’s development, and to come in as true partners and role players as part of a new world development platform.
