In support of forest conservation, KIPPRA staff joined East African Wild Life Society for Forest Challenge 2021. The event took place on 27th November 2021 at Kereita Forest in Kiambu County and attracted 48 organizations who competed in different sporting activities and planted trees.
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.
KIPPRA team who participated in the challenge emerged 4th best team overall and were awarded certificates.
