Environment and Natural Resources Management

A clean, safe and healthy environment is a foundation for sustainable economic development and hence, the need to address environmental challenges facing the country such as deforestation, pollution, soil erosion, land and wetlands degradation, poaching, loss of biodiversity and contamination from poor mining practices. 

Government is, therefore, committed to following a greener growth path, improving the environment, climate change management and developing its biodiversity economy to achieve sustainable development. The biodiversity economy, entailing sustainable use and/or conservation of indigenous species in their natural habitats will be developed to improve livelihoods and ensure climate resilient economic development.
