Kenya: Country Opts for Jatropha in Race for Clean Fuels
Business Daily (Nairobi)
26 September 2007
The government of Kenya has established a national taskforce to
promote the growing of Jatropha for biofuel in the nation's arid
regions. Kenya is promoting this crop for lands that have been
degraded over the years by poor farming and pastoral practices.
Jatropha may help restore econiomic vability to these lands.
