The problems we have in Kenya are very similar to those in other African countries. They include high populations, low rate of contraceptive use and lack of land for expansion for farming. The management of conflict between people and the environment in the region is wanting and there is need for more concerted efforts to tackle this. The African Union has however come up with strategies on how this can be done. Kenya may be better off in terms of our economic capacity, and policies especially the constitution which is really proactive and if implemented as envisioned, can help us tackle some of the challenges we are facing as a nation. Good governance and good leadership is key to economic development of any nation.
