The Principal Secretary in the State Department of Environment and Natural Resources Dr. Richard Lesiyampe, has said that, Kenya has taken a deliberate measure to secure the Country’s development against the risks and impacts of climate change and is on track to achieve the constitutional requirement of achieving and marinating a tree cover of at least 10 percent.

Speaking during a sensitization workshop for members of the Parliamentary committee on Environment and Natural Resources on the new climate change law and bill at the Flamigo Beach and Resort hotel in Mombasa, Dr. Lesiyampe said that, the National Climate Change Action Plan forms the basis for the Country’s transition to a low carbon resilience development through clear priority actions aimed at building resilience of communities, the economy and the environment, while at the same time enabling the country to remain a low emitter.
