The challenge aims at creating awareness on the need to protect forests and mobilize resources for the restoration of degraded water catchment areas. KIPPRA participated in the forest challenge as part of the institute’s corporate social responsibility and to support the government’s effort to increase Kenya’s forest cover from 7.2 per cent to 10 per cent by 2022. This will enable the country overcome negative impact of climate change.
