The Kenya Forest Service has embarked on construction of various buildings valued at a total of Ksh. 250 million through the Natural Resource Management Project (NRMP) funded by the World Bank. This includes construction of an Information Centre at the KFS Headquarters in Karura, construction of a new hospitality centre and rehabilitation of existing buildings at Kenya Forestry College in Londiani and construction of an ultra modern office block for the Department of Forestry and Wood Science at Chepkoilel Campus of Moi University.
These developments will aid in achieving NRMP objectives of enhancing the institutional capacity of KFS to manage forestry resources and promote significant social and environmental impacts. During signing of contracts with the respective companies tasked to undertake the various developments, the KFS Director D.K. Mbugua, noted that the construction would have a lasting impact on KFS and the benefits accrued from these investments would be long term. All the three developments are expected to be complete by June 2011.
