Institute For Culture And Ecology Condemns The Proposed Erasure Of Section 34(2) Of The Kenya Forest Conservation And Management Act 2016
Institute for Culture and Ecology (ICE) has condemned the proposed deletion of the section 34(2) of the Forest Conservation and Management Act 2016, terming the move as outrageous and unacceptable. “This move is outrageous and aims at undermining the efforts by various stakeholders to protect and conserve public forests in Kenya. The intention by National Assembly’s Procedure and House Rules Committee will take us back to where we were in the 1990s and 2000 where Kenya Forests were facing extinction.” Observed Martin Muriuki, ICE’s Executive Director.
ECO-MAPPING AND INTERGENERATIONAL KNOWLEDGE TRANSFER FOR CONSERVATION OF KAYA FORESTS
Through an SGP Funded project, ICE promotes eco-cultural mapping as one of the avenues to facilitate intergenerational transfer of knowledge among elders, women and youth. Communities tap into their traditional indigenous knowledge and cultural values and practices and fuse them with contemporary approaches to reduce forest degradation. Here is the article documented for 2020 World Environment Day (WED). The international theme of 2020’s WED is Biodiversity. The slogan: #Time for Nature.
