Environment Secretary, Dr. Alice Kaudia has said that there is need to transition to a green growth development approach so as to achieve economic growth target envisioned in the country’s blue print Vision 2030 among other benefits.

“There is need to transition to green growth development approach so as to address poverty eradication, rapid population growth, unemployment, urbanization and degradation of natural capital” she said.

Dr. Kaudia said this during the opening of the County Training of Trainers workshop on Green Economy Planning in Nakuru County. The training will focus on four areas among them waste, water, agriculture and energy.  She noted that Green Economy initiatives will enable new ideas to be tested and integrated into County Development Plans if their economic and environmental viability is established.

Through implementing the Green Economy strategies, the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) will be achieved since they cover various aspects of sustainable development such as health, ending poverty and hunger, , equality and inclusivity as well as access to energy.

Green Economy provides an avenue for functional interaction between the economy and the SDGs. The 17 SDG goals provide a framework in which green growth targets can reorient national economic development planning as well as guide the behavior of both the public and private sectors.

The Green Economy programme runs in 5 countries among them Kenya, Ghana, Rwanda, Ethiopia and Mozambique and is a partnership between the Government of Kenya, German Development Corporation (GIZ) and United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP).
