The Government recognizes the role environmentalists play as chief stewards of the World’s ecosystem. Speaking during  the Equator  prize for sustainable  Land  Management in Sub-Saharan  Africa Award Ceremony at the Safari Park Hotel, Nairobi, the Environment Secretary in the State Department  of Environment and Natural Resources, Dr. Alice  Kaudia, who represented the Cabinet Secretary Prof. Judii Wakhungu noted that, over generations, environmentalists have used their traditional ecological  knowledge to manage natural resources, conserve and maintain ecosystems and adapt to environmental changes.

 Dr. Kaudia commended Equator Initiative for working to recognize and advance local and indigenous efforts that reduce poverty through the conservation and sustainable use of biodiversity.   United Nation Developments’ Equator Initiative leads a process that identifies examples of local ingenuity, innovation, and leadership in sustainable land management in dry lands in sub-Saharan Africa.

Among the recipients of the Equator Initiative Awards were Utooni Development Organization and Northern Rangelands Trust both from Kenya.  Other recipients were from Benin, Burkina Faso, Ghana, Niger, Togo, Chad, Tanzania, South Africa, Swaziland and Zambia.
