The Government is taking seriously the depletion of the Country’s  environment due to pressure from the increasing population and competition for Natural resources, among them, unsustainable land use. Principal Secretary in the Ministry of Environment and Forestry, Mr. Charles Sunkuli has said.

Speaking when he presided over the launch of the  Samsung ethanol energy saving stoves, that will benefit  the over 200,000 refugees at the Kakuma refugee camp, Mr. Sunkuli noted that, the use of ethanol instead of charcoal, will enable the households to benefit from an eco-friendly environment with less smoke, while reducing their fuel costs and pressure on forest cover.

Noting that the energy saving eco-friendly stoves, that are being made by Samsung, will help reduce carbon dioxide emission in the Country by 500,000 tons in the next five years, the Principal Secretary commended the  Samsung and its partners for the project, noting that, it will make a significant impact in the lives of the refugees and the neighbourhood.
