The Cabinet Secretary for Environment Prof. Judi Wakhungu has decried the poor solid waste management within the urban settlements in the country that has become a menace.

To address the hazard, Prof. Wakhungu urged county governments to set aside sufficient land for construction of sanitary landfills alongside promoting resource-use practices that minimize generation of waste.

Owing to the magnitude of managing solid waste and enforcement of regulations, the CS called for strong partnerships between different law      enforcing agencies, the public and the private sector.

She made the remarks in a speech read on her behalf by the Environment Secretary Dr. Alice Kaudia, during a 3 day youth Stakeholders Conference at Moi high School Kabarak drawn from various counties to find solutions to environmental challenges.

The conference whose theme was  “Building synergies towards environmental sustainability’’  focused on three thematic areas with challenges posed by climate change, food and nutrition insecurity  as well as  solid waste management.

Prof Wakhungu challenged the youth to initiate innovative enterprises and business ideas that would create employment while at the same time support efforts towards addressing challenges of climate change and enable the country transition to a green growth economy.
