CS Tobiko in around table meeting with officials from WWF at their annual meeting (1)

Environment and Forestry Cabinet Secretary Keriako Tobiko has challenged conservation organizations to stick to the original deal for nature to ensure ancient knowledge is used to propagate conservation agenda.

The CS was reacting to World Wildlife Fund (WWF) Annual conference theme “New Deal for Nature” and wondered what happened to the original deal where there was harmony between people and their environment.

CS Tobiko spoke as he presided over the conference opening on behalf of president Uhuru Kenyatta at a Mombasa hotel.

While appreciating indigenous knowledge systems in conservation the CS called on conservationists to stick to the original plan with new ideas.

The indigenous knowledge he saidis a significant resource which would contribute to the increased efficiency, effectiveness and sustainability in environmental conservation among rural communities.

He urged the meeting to move away from board rooms and reports and ensure work is done on the ground.

In Kenya emphasis has been forrural communities to form the basis of decision making at their level in matters pertaining to food security, human and animal health, education and more importantly in natural resource management.
