KFS urges Kenyans to take advantage of long rains and plant trees.
The Chief Conservator of Forests (CFF) Julius Kamau has asked Kenyans to plant trees to mitigate the effects of climate change.
In his Labour Day message to Kenyans on Saturday, Kamau called on Kenyans to conserve the environment.
He asked Kenyans to take advantage of the long rains.
He noted how forest ecosystems and in particular green spaces have turned refuge and haven to Kenyans especially during this period of the Covid-19 pandemic.
In the same breath, the CCF has also noted that for the country to achieve the 10% tree cover, it has necessitated the Service to deploy innovative approaches.
Key among the approaches are creating linkages and collaboration with various partners to complement its efforts in reclaiming, restoring and rehabilitating forest and landscapes.
Kamau thanked various entities (both state and non-state actors) currently partnering with KFS in planting trees.
He noted the critical role the KFS staff countrywide play to enable the Service to achieve its mandate.
