Danish government invests in Kenya

05 April 2012, 11:48 Kelvin Wanjohi

The Danish Government is investing KES 1.4 Billion in community environment conservation and poverty eradication initiatives over the next four years.

The money, to be channeled through the Community Development Trust Fund, will go to 97 projects shortlisted from over 3000 applicants.

The Deputy Danish Ambassador, Ole Thonke , while launching the Mt. Kenya Environmental Conservation and Poverty Reduction Project at Karindundu in Karatina, Nyeri County, said 15 projects in the county will benefit from the funding to the tune of KES 151 Million.

Mathira MP Ephraim Maina and the CDTF Projects Co-ordinator Salesius Miu attended the occasion.

He said it is expected  that the projects when fully implemented they will help to reduce pressure on the natural resources in the country’s water towers.

He said his government and the European Union have combined efforts to avail KES 2.36 Billion for environmental conservation, targeting climate change and promoting the development and use of renewable energy.

The Central Provincial Director of Planning Grace Muimi noted that most of the projects that could not be funded due to the inadequacy of funding deserved to be implemented in order to improve their proponents livelihoods and urged other donors to contribute money to the CDTF to enable it reach out to more communities.
