President Uhuru Kenyatta has urged key decision-makers from across the world, to prioritize environmental action in support of economic and societal growth, noting that, the environment can no longer be a tertiary concern, and that building a sustainable future cannot be an afterthought.

Speaking at the United Nations Environment Programme Offices in Nairobi, when he opened the 2nd United Nations Environment Assembly (UNEA-2) High Level Segment (HLS), which is the world’s most powerful decision-making body on the environment, responsible for tackling some of the most critical issues of our time, President Kenyatta urged the decision-makers to prioritize environmental action in support of economic and societal growth.

Addressing the  assembly , that holds the power to dramatically change the fate of the planet and improve the lives of everyone, impacting everything from health to national security, from the plastic in our oceans to the trafficking of wildlife, President Kenyatta called for a concerted international effort to support the Wild for Life campaign– an initiative aimed at creating collaboration, policy implementation, and grassroots participation to sensitize communities in source and destination countries to the war on poaching, that was launched by the United Nations to address the illegal trade in wildlife, which is pushing species to the brink of extinction, robbing countries of their natural heritage and profiting international criminal networks.
