The Government of Kenya pledged to restore 5.1 million hectares of land in the country by 2030 under the African Forest and Landscape Restoration Initiative (AFR100) and Bonn Challenge. The government has set a target of 10% tree cover for the country.
Efforts are underway in different sectors including environment, forestry, conservation and agriculture to achieve this ambition.
