Having A Good time in a temporal Island, would you go for it? I wouldn’t even think twice about it. Its a big yes for me. And I have just a nice place that I will plan on a day to go and enjoy the ocean there.
Islands are naturally full of life and unique environment. I think water separates them from all the bad things until human developments happen.
Island that stays alive for four hours in a given season
During my visit to the ocean, I was shown a portion of the ocean that dries up sometimes. Allowing people to enjoy some calmness of the ocean within its vicinity. The place can remain dry for almost four hours, meaning, you can even hold a short party there.
When you are enjoying a boat ride, the breeze kisses your face in amazing ways. As the waves soothe your moods. The land continues to reduce in size as you sail deeper into the ocean.
Its normally feels like you are entering a different and new world. The feeling is incredible.
Kenya’s 2nd National Climate Change Action Plan (2018 – 2022)
Kenya’s 2nd National Climate Change Action Plan (2018 – 2022). It’s basically a continuation and a comprehensive version of the 1st National Climate Change Action Plan of 2013 – 2017.
This Action Plan first identified priory areas that helped shape the details to be included. These priority areas are:
Food and Nutrition Security. Whereby they are to assist Kenyans increase food production and nutrition security. By promoting agricultural practices that will produce low carbon.
Disaster Risk Management. This is to be addressed by ensuring measures are put in place incase of drought or floods.
Water and Blue Economy. Blue economy is still a new concept in our country. So they will be able to guide us on how to sustainably use the available water and other resources that comes along with. Without practicing over-exploitation of these resources.
Forestry, Wildlife and Tourism. We are known for our wildlife but their habitat has been shrinking rapidily. We are to increase our forest cover to 10% and rehabilitate degraded lands. This will be a boost to both tourism and wildlife welfare.
Health, Sanitation and Human Settlements. Here, the plan is to improve on the solid waste management in urban areas.
Energy and Transport. This will help eliminate any energy production that is not climate-proof or contribute to greenhouse gases emissions in huge amounts.
Progress made in this Action Plan include:
Development of the National Adaption Plan. That is destined to help Kenyans adapt practices that will help curb climate change.
Establishment of climate change funds. That will be used to support the adaptation plans and practices in five counties.
Enabled expansion of geothermal, solar and wind power. So as to lower greenhouse gases emissions and natural resources utilization while producing power.
Provided improvement in legal and policy framework. Which includes Cimate Change Act 2016, National Climate Change Framework Policy as well as National Climate Finance Policy.
This Action Plan also included more parties such as:
National and County governments.
Civil Society organizations.
The above are very important in ensuring that this plan yiled success. It has included all the parties that contribute to the greenhouse gases emission . And best people to teach on the adaptation and mitigation plans while dealing with the consequences as a result of climate change.
It All Starts With You. Whether small or big, or whether we believe or not. Everything boils back to you.
Do you want to be alive tomorrow? Living in a condusive environment? With no corrupt leaders? Coming up with crappy policies that infringes your rights? Forcing you to life threatening diseases and discomfort?
Then, you have to act. Act as if your life depends on it. Because it literally does depend on it. It seems that we get used to injustices and mishandling to a point of no longer caring what is being done to us and other human beings.
But am only one person, what impact do I have?
There is where you are dead wrong.
Most life changing decisions were suggested by individuals who believed in themselves. Eventually got backed up by more supporters. So if that one person would have remained silent then no change would have happen.
No change is too small, or anyone too young/old to make these changes. It just need you and me, deciding to make that bold step.
You know littering environment is wrong, go ahead and tell that one person who keeps throwing stuff everywhere. It may be an uncomfortable conversation, but its productive for both living organisms and nature.
Kenya is one of a kind. Unique in many ways and a home to a wide range of amazing people. If you haven’t visited Kenya yet, it should be your next destination.
Kenya is a country found within Africa. In fact most people think of Kenya when Africa comes to their mind or conversations. Among the African countries we do shine.
Some know Kenya for the bad light while others knows it from its awesomeness. Those who have visited us or live here now, can attest that Kenya is an amazing place to be.
Many are the times we have been brought down to our knees by terrorist, our own people and even leaders. We have been victims of many wars and unfairness. But we always rise above our pain and problems. We have learnt to move on and concentrate on the positive sides.
Kenya is a home for approximately 43.5 million people. It hosts both the locals, foreigners and refugees. Constitutes forty-seven tribes including the foreign tribes that were accommodated as natives.
Kenya’s Capital city is Nairobi. It’s a vibrant city and the largest one in the country. The official languages are Swahili and English. Making it easier for the visitors to communicate with the locals. Kenyans are very friendly people and easy to mingle with.
We love visitors and always assures them hakuna matata. Almost all our forty seven counties have conservation areas. In fact our country is named after a mountain in Nyeri ( Mt. Kenya).
Wildlife still roams freely among local communities in some parts of our country. The locals have a convenient relationship with the wildlife. Although sometime it may go south leading to serious human-wildlife conflicts.
We have a wide range of wildlife with famous one known as the big five. They can be easily sighted the conservation areas or areas neighboring them. Flora are not left behind either. From the indigenous ones to even the exotic one.
Apart from wildlife, we have multiple places for fun. Including rock climbing, hiking, mountaineering, swimming, game-viewing, camping, among others. One of the things that make us one of a kind.
We have a national park in the center of our capital city. Which was once known as the city on the sun. But unfortunately that has changed with time. Due to climate change, overpopulation, pollution, land encroachment.
Kenya is a land of almost everything. From arid and semi-arid areas. Wetlands and rain-forest. The coast. Rivers, lakes and streams. The equator cut across our country.
Most tribes in our country still practice their tradition ways of living. Hence a good place to learn some of our cultural values. Some major cities like Nairobi, Nakuru, Mombasa, Kisumu, Eldoret, among others have embraced urbanization. And are mostly cosmopolitan.
