What will be the ultimate test for Kenya is to harness the power of this workforce without destroying the very environment on which the country is inextricably (and necessarily) tied. The foundational role of the environment in providing Ecosystem Goods and Services to cater to this growing population is essential. Kenya's environmental governance will ultimately have a massive part to play as so much of the current economy is directly dependent on the health of an environment which attracts billions in tourism revenues as well as billions more in Ecosystem Goods and Services. With global climate change likely to impact the availability of basics such as water and agricultural land, in tandem with the population growth, the role of environmental governance becomes all the more important in harnessing this opportunity.
