KUCCPS is committed to ensuring that it makes a contribution to the national 10% tree cover by the end of next year.

This is in line with the Presidential Directive issued by President Kenyatta on dedicating 10% of the CSR budget towards tree planting in the country.

Mrs Wahome also raised concern that students are no longer interested in environmental courses in universities and challenged Prof Tanui to explore ways of partnership in raising awareness on these courses.
