Rural Kenya like other developing economies faces diverse sustainability challenges such as climate change, degraded ecosystems, poor health, waterborne diseases and poor waste management. Unsuitable consumption patterns and limited environmental awareness are the major problems.There is therefore an increased need for capacity development, environmental awareness and information exchange to foster a generation of environmentally conscious citizens capable of positive action.
Environment is the surrounding where we are, the physical geographical area that you are located. Network for Environment and Food Security realizes that 10 of the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) have their roots in environmental awareness and protection.
Thus environmental protection is key to creating a sustainable and self-reliant community. In collaboration with the communities we define, implement, monitor and evaluate environmental protection projects to ensure their ongoing viability and effectiveness.
