Kenya: According to The Star (Kenya), a reforestation drive is targeting the counties of Mombasa, Kilifi and Kwale to achieve the internationally-recommended 10% forest cover.
Bamburi Cement has embarked on a campaign that will see 1.5 million trees planted at the coast by May 2016. It has provided 500,000 tree seedlings to each of the three county governments to do so. "We need to create a culture where the re-planting of trees is practised to avoid environmental degradation," said plant manager Peter Gibendi. He added that Kenya's coastal forests, though fragmented and small, are of critical important to the country.
