The National Environment Management Authority (NEMA), Mamo B. Mamo, EBS, has spearheaded the launch of a wetlands restoration project in Nairobi, specifically targeting the Dikdik wetland.
The initiative, aligned with the government’s broader commitment to plant 15 billion trees by 2032, aims to restore and conserve wetlands and their associated catchments.
Termed the “Adopt-a-Wetland Initiative,” the program seeks to foster collaboration among diverse stakeholders, encouraging their active participation in the collective effort to enhance wetlands conservation across the country.
The launch follows a commitment to sustainable environmental practices, emphasizing the vital role wetlands play in biodiversity, water resource management, and climate change mitigation.
This initiative marks a crucial step forward in the realization of the government’s ambitious tree-planting goals and the broader environmental conservation agenda.
As stakeholders unite under the “Adopt-a-Wetland Initiative,” the prospect of revitalized wetlands and strengthened ecosystems holds promise for a greener and more resilient future for Nairobi and the nation at large.
