Hands off Kenya's forests

credit Pulse Kenya

Despite more than 10 000 people urging the Kenyan government to keep the six-year-old logging ban in place, President William Ruto has lifted it. By lifting this ban, President Ruto has prioritised profit over people and nature as the decision allows sawmillers to harvest mature trees from both public and community forests, which could result in devastating consequences to our environment in this crucial time of the climate crisis.

The ban on logging should not be based on monetary value but rather on restoring Kenya’s natural forests with indigenous trees.

We urge President Ruto to immediately reinstate the ban on logging in all the community and public forests and explore sustainable alternatives like bamboo to supplement the wood and timber needs of the country.

Urge President William Ruto to reinstate the ban on logging public and community forests in Kenya.
