Cabinet Secretary Prof. Judi Wakhungu today held discussions with a team from Conservation International, who briefed her on the activities they were undertaking in Kenya and Africa in general with a view to seeking more partnership opportunities.

The team led by Michael O’Brien, head of Conservation Systems Services in Africa said they were working on Payment for Ecosystem Services (PES) and Chyulu and Tsavo West Redd project to conserve the ecosystem. He said they were also partnering with Kenya Forest Service (KFS) and Kenya Wildlife Service (KWS) in the same region to conserve the environment. They expressed their interest to work in the northern rangelands of Marsabit and Isiolo to reduce emission effects and activities of deforestation.

The CS welcomed their initiative and said Kenya supports the collaboration of conservation international with KFS and KWS. She noted that the ecosystem around Amboseli and Mzima springs is under threat and if revitalized will impact positively on the population as it will translate into alternative dividends for livelihoods.

At the meeting were Carlos Manuel Rodrigues, former Minister for Environment for Costarica and now board member of Conservation International in Africa and Richard Mwendandu, Director, Multilateral Environmental Agreements in the Ministry among others.

Conservation International is an American non-profit environmental organization headquartered in Arlington, Virginia. Its goal is to protect nature as a source of food, fresh water, livelihoods and a stable climate.
