Enhancing Environmental sustainability and climate change resilience program.

As Kenya’s population continues to grow, one of the major challenges posed is inadequate energy supply. This calls for technological innovations including increased access to and use of renewable energy sources. The increased volumes of fossil fuels like kerosene use pose not only environmental challenges through air pollution but also threaten the health of the people. Since the environment is the natural resource base, this calls for its conservation and protection. Due to the fact that non – renewable energy sources may get depleted over time, it is important that more efforts are geared towards adopting energy saving technologies.

The group has therefore worked towards environmental conservation. Here the group has mainly focused on tree planting, waste management and capacity building, renewable energy technologies, which involves promotion of and installation of environmentally friendly wood fuel domestic stoves.
