Kenya is set to host a regional workshop at which delegates will share information, knowledge and experiences in African forestry, organizers said on Tuesday.

Godwin Kowero, executive secretary of Africa Forest Forum (AFF), said that the workshop will be held on May 20-24 in Nairobi and will be attended by over 100 delegates.

“We shall also be commemorating a decade of our work in the continent during the workshop,” Kowere told journalists.

Kowero revealed that AFF will also be launching eight training compendiums on various aspects of climate change in forestry.

He noted that AFF has taken a leading role in creating awareness on the role of forests and trees in national economic development, livelihoods and environmental stability in all the African countries.

“We have provided a bridge between science-based knowledge and good policies to support sustainable forest management by effectively working within a science-policy-management framework,” he added.

AFF was founded in 2007 as a platform that could support African forestry stakeholders to discuss and mobilize resources for improved management and use of their forest and tree resources.

The event is organized by AFF in collaboration with the Kenya Forest Service (KFS) and the Kenya Forestry Research Institute (KEFRI). Enditem
