LANDS CEC HOLDS MEETING WITH ANGLICAN DEVELOPMENT SERVICES
The County Department of Lands, Environment, Natural Resources and Climate Change today held a strategic meeting with a team from Anglican Development Services Western region.
CECM LENRCC Dr. Philemon Bureti appreciated the partnership that ADS has had with the department. “The idea of mainstreaming Climate Information System into County plans is very important as this will curb the occurrences of too much rain experienced during the planting and harvesting season as the Metereological department will also be involved” he emphasized.
Chief Officer Dr. Solomon Mang’ira urged ADS to continue engaging with the community as they have felt the need to conserve the environment following the occurrences experienced lately.
So far, ADS has partnered with the Department in formulation of policies, drafts and regulations on Climate Change that will soon be presented to the County Assembly.
ADS has visited 10 wards including Kilibwoni, Terik, Kabiyet, Nandi hills and Lelmokwo to carry out Sensitization on Climate Change and also engaged the community in tree planting exercise in churches and schools.
