The government appreciates the role of the Japan International Cooperation agency, JICA, for its commitment in helping to combat desertification by enhancing the forest cover in the Country, the Cabinet Secretary in the Ministry of Environment and Natural Resources, Prof. Judi Wakhungu has said.

Speaking when she received a delegation of JICA forestry experts in her office, that was led by Mr. Kunihiro Yamauchi,  Director General, Global Environment Department, Japan,  Prof. Wakhungu observed that, the tree cover in the country had grown from 6.9% to 7.2%  and hoped that, with the help of strategic partners like JICA, the country was on track to achieving the 10% internationally recognized tree cover.

Prof. Wakhungu called for the speedy ratification of the forest transition plans by the counties to enhance the pace of afforestation noting that, to date, only the counties of Taita Taveta and Laikipia had signed the transition plan.
