CS Tobiko when he addressed the visiting presidential delivery Unit team on a courtesy call to his office.

Environment and Forestry Cabinet Secretary Keriako Tobiko has appealed to the Government to consider allocating corresponding resources to the Environment Sector as it was the bed rock of development in the Country.

He said that the government’s big four agenda of Food security, Universal health, affordable housing and manufacturing were all dependent on the Environment and Forestry sector, yet the National treasury allocates meager resources to manage the vast sector.

The CS gave an example of the Kenya Forest Service that was currently managing a moratorium on logging and were struggling to cater for transport, equipment and operation expenses. He said all the sections and divisions in his Ministry were operating on very stringent budgets.

He was speaking when he led his Ministry officials in a presentation to the Presidential Delivery Unit (PDU) team who paid a courtesy call on him. The team was monitoring and evaluating the Ministry of Environment and Forestry’s performance on the government’s Big four Agenda.

The PDU team was led by Ms Katra Sambili a Senior Director who promised to work hand in hand with the Ministry to deliver the presidential agenda on Environment and Forestry.

The meeting discussed included Climate change, Meteorology, waste management, Water towers, forestry research and multilateral environment agreements.

Among the Ministry officials who accompanied the CS were the Conservation Secretary Mr. Gedion Gathaara and the Director of Administration Mr.Henry Obino.
