Investing in digital literacy for grassroots transformation in Kenya

Kenya is experiencing a “youth bulge”. At least 20% of the country’s population is made up of youth between the ages of 15 and 24. This could be a big advantage if young people have access to economic opportunities, particularly information and communication technology. But the reality is different. Currently, youth unemployment is high, estimated at about 22% in 2016.

CLIMAT : Rendre aux forêts leur rôle régulateur en impliquant les acteurs locaux dans leur gestion

Les forêts jouent un rôle de premier plan dans le climat mondial. Les arbres et les sols qui les composent captent le dioxyde de carbone de l’atmosphère et le convertissent, par la photosynthèse, en carbone, qu’ils emmagasinent ensuite sous la forme de bois et de végétation. C’est un processus connu sous le terme de « piégeage du carbone ». Les forêts fixent d’énormes quantités de carbone. Au total, les forêts et les sols forestiers de la planète stockent plus de 1 000 milliards de tonnes de carbone, deux fois plus que le volume présent dans l’atmosphère. Empêcher ces stocks de carbone d’être libérés sous forme de gaz est crucial pour le bilan carbone, vital pour la conservation de l’environnement et utile pour un meilleur contrôle du réchauffement global (www.fao.org).
