15 April 2013, 16:20

Nairobi - Kenya can meet the United Nations’ requirement of 10 percent forest cover even before the set deadline of year 2030, KBC reports.

According to Green Belt Movement executive director Pauline Kamau, tripartite collaborations and the private sector funds tree planting and the Green Belt Movement nurtures the trees for a period of three years before handing them over to Kenya Forest Service (KFS).

This has seen Kenya gradually start reversing deforestation in the nation's five water towers; namely Mt. Kenya, the Aberdare Range, the Mau Complex, Mt. Elgon and the Cherangani Hills.
