The Principal Secretary for Environment and Forestry Mr. Charles Sunkuli has said local innovations will provide solutions to threats and vagaries of climate change.

He urged local innovators to step up efforts to device affordable implements that could be used in schools and the rural communities to hold water under the climate change and adaptation programs.

Mr. Sunkuli was speaking in his office today when he received a locally made safe water purifier from Eng. Moses Omedi Jura, a scientist based at the Ministry of Environment and Forestry’s climate change directorate.

The water purifier dubbed “Hom Water Filter” will come in hardy in areas where clean water is rare and where pots are used in unhygienic conditions to hold domestic water.

The PS noted the new water filter which will retail for about Ksh. 6,000 will save the rural communities of drinking water expenses through homemade solutions.
