Kenya celebrates World Environment Day with green commitment
Green offices will be constructed in Kenya after funding was given to the National Environment Management Authority (NEMA) recently. That is according to a report by coastweek.com, which also revealed that the country has been supporting World Environment Day yesterday (June 5th). Now, authorities are looking at promoting the green economy further and reducing poverty in parts of the country. Geoffrey Wahungu, director of the NEMA, told the news provider that an award will be set up to help promote a green economy. "We have also developed an award mechanism under the NEMA Green List initiative whereby, the Authority awards the best institutions that work towards efficient use of resources which contributes towards a green economy," Mr Wahungu said during celebrations in Mombasa. Meanwhile, Kenya Airways has added Kilimanjaro and Eldoret to its list of destinations as it looks to visit more places in Africa - something that could also lead to a boost in tourism.
