Land Degradation which is driven by harsh ecological conditions and unsustainable land management practices, is a threat to food security and sustainable development, and continues to threaten livelihoods countrywide, Principal Secretary in the State Department of Environment, Mr. Charles Sunkuli has said.

Speaking when he opened an inception workshop to set Kenya’s targets for Land Degradation Neutrality (LDN) at a Nairobi hotel, Mr. Sunkuli observed that, during the 12th Conference of the United Nations Convention to Combat Desertification, (UNCCD) held in Ankara, Turkey, in 2015, landmark decisions were agreed, among them, countries were requested to set voluntary targets for the implementation of the Land Degradation Neutrality (LDN).

Land Degradation Neutrality calls for securing enough healthy and productive natural resources by avoiding degradation whenever possible, and restoring land that has already been degraded. At the core, are better management practices, and better land use planning that will improve economic, social and ecological sustainability for present and future generations.

Noting that 80% of Kenya is arid and semi arid, Mr. Sunkuli informed the participants that, Kenya had prioritized the issue of halting land degradation across sectors, in order to enhance the attainment of food security through sustainable land management practices, water harvesting and land based initiatives.
