Kenyan Government Pledges Desertification Action

The Kenyan ministry of environment and natural resources has fast-tracked implementation of robust interventions at the grassroots to halt loss of pristine land to natural calamities and human actions, officials have said.

Cabinet Secretary for environment and natural resources, Professor Judi Wakhungu said the government has invested heavily in restoration of forests and water towers to prevent desertification in line with global conventions.

"We are implementing several national action plans to help manage land degradation and recurrent droughts that are fuelling desertification in the country," Wakhungu said during an event to mark the World Day to Combat Desertification in Nairobi.
