Environmental Sustainability, Renewable Energy & Land Management

To remain globally competitive Kenya has to manage and sustain her environment and natural resource base. The country subsistence and national economies, foreign exchange and significant contribution to GDP depend on agriculture and agro-based industries, tourism, water resources and hydropower. Despite this reality Kenya is facing many environment challenges that include deforestation, soil erosion, land degradation, desertification, loss of biodiversity, water scarcity and pollution from industry.

Our goals
