According to the World Bank, infrastructure is the key to Africa’s economic turnaround and will play an even greater role in the continent’s continued development. Kenya, in particular, is making giant strides in infrastructure and urbanization, with demarcated economic zones, commercial and residential buildings, and resorts for tourists. And as Kenya’s population and economy grows, the demand for fuel-wood and construction materials, such as sawn timber, is also accelerating.
