Environment, Climate Change and Forestry Cabinet Secretary Soipan Tuya on Wednesday presided over the 46th graduation ceremony of the Kenya Forestry College in Londiani, Kericho County during which 118 trainees graduated with diploma and certificate qualifications in forest-related courses. The Cabinet Secretary, who was accompanied by Forestry Principal Secretary Gitonga Mugambi, was received at Kenya’s only specialised forestry college by Chief Conservator of Forests Alex Lemarkoko, Kenya Forest Service board chairman Titus Korir and the college principal Dr Elizabeth Wambugu. While congratulating the graduands for successfully completing their courses, CS Tuya challenged them to apply acquired skills, competencies and expertise in assisting the country achieve its landscapes and ecosystem restoration agenda that includes growing of 15 billion trees by 2032. “These 118 young men and women have invested their time and effort, working tirelessly to successfully earn their diplomas and certificates. “To all you graduands, I would like to urge you to take it upon yourselves to practice that which you learnt, in whatever capacity, during your time at this college. “The country requires you to support our efforts in sustainable conservation, management and protection of the environment for her socio-economic development,” CS Tuya counseled the graduands. At the same time, CS Tuya challenged the college leadership to continue innovating new courses aimed at addressing Kenya’s pressing climate action priorities and directed Kenya Forest Service (KFS) to ensure that the institution is adequately supported. “I direct the KFS Board of Directors and Management to enhance forestry education and training at this college by developing appropriate policies, programmes and strategies. “The Board also needs to provide the necessary human and financial resources to ensure that the graduands of this college have the required skill-set for the entire environmental sector,” CS Tuya underscored

        The emphasis by the Kenyan environmental CS on the importance of sustainable conservation to forest service graduands highlights the critical role of environmental stewardship in preserving our natural resources. By emphasizing sustainable practices, this recognition underscores the need to balance economic development and environmental protection. Protecting forests and practicing sustainable conservation not only ensures the preservation of biodiversity but also contributes to mitigating climate change and promoting long-term environmental sustainability. This emphasis is necessary to instill a sense of responsibility and awareness among future forest service professionals, empowering them to make informed decisions and take actions that preserve and enhance our natural environment for future generations.
