Pollination is a vital ecosystem function and service. And while it is vital for regulating nature, agriculture, human well-being, and more, this World Bee Day we focus on pollinator-friendly agricultural production. 

Unfortunately, pollinators have been drastically declining due to multiple factors, including climate change and intensive agricultural practices, such as monocultures. The overuse or misuse of agricultural chemicals, including insecticides, herbicides, and fungicides, have also been contributing to the loss of wild and domesticated pollinators. 

The conservation, restoration, and sustainable use of biodiversity within soils and agricultural lands is a major component in achieving sustainability across productive sectors, particularly in food systems. The Kunming-Montreal Global Biodiversity Framework, adopted at COP 15, includes a target that aims to ensure that areas under agriculture are managed sustainably, including through biodiversity-friendly practices. 

Practices like sustainable intensification and agroecological approaches with more diversified crops can enhance the abundance and the diversity of pollinator species in agricultural landscapes, which enhance the resilience, long-term efficiency and productivity of production systems.

Wild and managed pollinators enhance the quality and secure crop production, directly contributing to food security.

The Framework also has a specific target to reduce pollution risks from all sources, including reducing the risk from pesticides to levels that are not harmful to biodiversity. 

In summary, the conservation and sustainable use of biodiversity in agricultural landscapes contribute to reversing pollination decline and closing yield gaps.

This World Bee Day, let us work together to protect bees and other pollinators through the urgent implementation of the Kunming-Montreal Global Biodiversity Framework. Together, we can feed the world and live in harmony with nature.

Conservation organizations in Kenya are making great strides in the preservation and protection of wildlife, as evidenced by a recent meeting with the PS State Department for Wildlife, Ms. Sylvia Museiya. The meeting, which brought together over 50 Conservation Alliance of Kenya members and stakeholders, aimed to discuss national priorities for the wildlife sector, receive feedback, and develop an implementation matrix of the agreed actions.

During the meeting, the PS emphasized the need to review the Wildlife ACT to incorporate new trends in conservation and to add communities as custodians of wildlife. This is an important step in recognizing the essential role that communities play in conservation efforts. By including communities in the conservation process, they become more invested in the preservation of wildlife and are more likely to take ownership of conservation efforts.

The Kenyan wildlife sector has invested over KES 6B in conservation efforts, highlighting the importance placed on protecting the country's natural resources. This investment is a testament to the commitment of the government and conservation organizations to safeguard the country's wildlife and biodiversity.

The meeting was a platform for stakeholders to pledge their support for the government's conservation efforts. This collaborative approach is essential in the fight against poaching, habitat loss, and other threats to wildlife. The collective efforts of conservation organizations and the government are vital in ensuring the protection of endangered species and their habitats.

Conservation organizations in Kenya play a crucial role in the protection of wildlife and their habitats. Their efforts are not only important for the preservation of biodiversity but also for the country's economy, as tourism plays a significant role in the country's GDP. Wildlife is a valuable asset that needs to be protected for the benefit of current and future generations.

The meeting was a positive step towards developing a shared vision for the protection of wildlife in Kenya. The collaboration between stakeholders and the government is crucial in achieving this goal. By working together, we can ensure that our natural resources are preserved for generations to come. We must continue to support and invest in conservation efforts to safeguard our country's wildlife and biodiversity.

Mother Earth Day Poster Landscape 2

Statement by David Cooper Acting Executive Secretary of the Convention on Biological Diversity International Mother Earth Day 22 April 2023

Today, this International Mother Earth Day, we reflect on our relationship with and our dependence on nature. 

Biodiversity is the heartbeat of Mother Earth – the variety of life on our planet. It is the air we breathe, the water we drink, the soil we walk on, the food we eat, the trees we seek shade under; it is everything. Unfortunately, that heartbeat is becoming faint. Biodiversity is being lost at unprecedented rates. That loss is being accelerated by climate change, and many other human factors, and our future is being threatened. It is time to resuscitate Mother Earth’s heartbeat and work towards the global vision of “Living in harmony with nature” by 2050.

We can get there. The Kunming-Montreal Global Biodiversity Framework can put our planet on a path to recovery by halting and reversing biodiversity loss and helping to combat climate change. However, we need to act now in order to see results by 2030.

Some of the Framework’s targets include aims to effectively conserve and manage at least 30% of the world’s lands, waters, coastal areas, and oceans, and to restore, or have under restoration, at least 30% of degraded ecosystems. Indigenous peoples and local communities will be instrumental in achieving these, and all, targets. And in doing so their rights must be respected.

The Framework also addresses the sustainable management of wildlife, controlling invasive alien species and pollution, including from pesticides, and the reduction of harmful subsidies, to name a few. 

We have the plan, but now we must move from agreement to action. If we act with urgency and implement the Kunming-Montreal Global Biodiversity Framework at national and sub-national levels, we will start to build back biodiversity and create a sustainable future for humankind.  

This day, and every day, I urge you to reflect on your relationship with Mother Earth. Consider what you can do, what your community can do, and what your country can do to mainstream biodiversity and implement the Kunming-Montreal Global Biodiversity Framework.

Earth Day Flyer Landscape

Mother Earth Day is a globally recognized event celebrated annually on April 22nd. It is a day that highlights the need for environmental conservation and sustainable development. The theme for this year’s celebration is “Restore Our Earth,” and Kenya is among the countries at the forefront of this movement.

Kenya is known for its diverse wildlife, breathtaking landscapes, and vibrant culture. However, we are facing numerous environmental challenges, including deforestation, soil erosion, pollution, and climate change. Mother Earth Day offers an opportunity to reflect on these challenges and find ways to restore the earth.

One of the ways the government is working towards restoring the earth is through its commitment to planting trees. The country aims to plant 2 billion trees by 2030, as part of the “Greening Kenya Initiative.” This initiative seeks to increase the country’s forest cover to at least 10% by 2030. This is a significant step towards reducing the effects of climate change, conserving biodiversity, and promoting sustainable development.

Conservation Alliance of Kenya (CAK) and our members have committed to adopt forests and national parks and reserves to ensure we grow trees for a better tomorrow. CAK will adopt part of Amboseli National Park in partnership with Serena Hotel to plant and grow trees. Other CAK members are also committed to adopt and grow trees. We believe that together we will reverse the effects of climate change. 

To restore the earth, the government and stakeholders are putting in efforts to promote renewable energy. The country has invested in various renewable energy sources such as solar, wind, and geothermal power. Kenya’s commitment to renewable energy has made it a leader in the region and has helped to reduce the country’s carbon footprint significantly.

In addition to these efforts, Kenya has implemented various policies and regulations aimed at protecting the environment. The country banned single-use plastic bags, which were a significant contributor to environmental pollution. Although there are challenges in implementation but the ban helped to reduce plastics pollution in the country.

Moreover, Kenya has implemented conservation measures to protect its wildlife and biodiversity. Together with the Ministry of Tourism and wildlife, we led the review of the National Wildlife startegy. This document higlights the key priority actions for the government and stakeholders to focus on for the next 5 years. This will help stakeholders to align their programing to what the government plans to achieve in the next five years.

In conclusion, Mother Earth Day is an opportunity to recognize the critical role that stakeholders play in protecting the environment. From the government to NGOs, civil society organizations, the private sector, and individuals, everyone has a role to play in promoting sustainable development and protecting Kenya's natural resources. By working together, we can ensure that Mother Earth continues to provide for us for generations to come.
