Kenya has an extremely high rate of deforestation, losing approximately 50,000 hectares of tropical forest a year. This is equivalent to 10 football fields per hour! The major challenge for Kenyans is the tightly woven relationship between the population, energy needs, health and deforestation.
Kenneth Mwenda, Project Manager at Climate Pal, is from Embu County in Kenya and understands these challenges only too well. Through his work at Climate Pal he is dedicated to helping tackle the social and environmental challenges through the development of cleaner cookstoves projects like the Hifadhi-Livelihoods project.
