STRENGTHENING ENVIRONMENTAL GOVERNANCE WITHIN THE EXTRACTIVES SECTOR CRITICAL TO REAPING OPTIMAL BENEFITS
Kenya’s prospects for the extractive industry are promising, though since independence, the modest portfolio of minerals has made only a marginal contribution to the GDP. While the prospects of developing the extractives sector into a major earner for Kenya is promising, the envisaged impacts on the environmental as well as the observed weaknesses in workable laws, regulations and policies requires urgent attention.
Online and offline, terror groups are deliberately seeking to attract women, especially those who harbour feelings of social and/or cultural exclusion and marginalisation. The Government of Kenya has focused on the often-overlooked promise of girls’ education. The young girl of today has higher ambition and a more competitive spirit. She no longer wants to go to school and only proceed to either the submissive housekeeper role, or token employment opportunities like her mother very likely did.
