Kenya has been at the forefront of climate change mitigation efforts, and the country’s ambitious 15 billion tree-planting initiative is a testament to this commitment. The initiative, which was launched by President William Ruto in December 2022, aims to plant at least 15 billion trees in urban and rural areas across the country by 2032. The initiative is part of the government’s efforts to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, stop and reverse deforestation, and restore 5.1 million hectares of deforested and degraded landscapes through the African Landscape Restoration Initiative. The government has estimated that the initiative will cost Ksh.500 billion to complete.

 

The 15 billion tree-planting initiative is a significant milestone in Kenya’s fight against climate change. The initiative is expected to have a positive impact on the environment, including reducing greenhouse gas emissions, improving air quality, and promoting biodiversity. The initiative is also expected to have a positive impact on the economy, including creating jobs in the forestry sector and promoting sustainable development. The government has called on all Kenyans to support the initiative by planting trees in their homes, schools, and workplaces.

 

The government has taken several steps to ensure the success of the 15 billion tree-planting initiative. The government has partnered with various stakeholders, including the private sector, to mobilize resources for the initiative. The government has also launched a public awareness campaign to educate Kenyans on the importance of tree planting and the benefits of the initiative. The government has also established a monitoring and evaluation framework to track the progress of the initiative and ensure that the trees are planted in the right places.
