Kenya is proud to have hosted a very successful United Nations Environment Assembly (UNEA) 3 Conference where the world committed to achieve a pollution free planet in air, land, water and marine ecosystems.

For the first time at UNEA, Environment Ministers signed a Declaration on sustainable use of natural resources and a pollution free planet.

Delegates and participants attending the assembly hailed Kenya’s plastic carrier bag ban that came to effect last August. The ban followed a gazette notice by Environment and Natural Resources Cabinet Secretary Prof. Judi Wakhungu and is being enforced by the National Environment Management Authority (NEMA).

During the assembly, Prof. Wakhungu said “the Plastic waste is already choking our water bodies & Oceans. It is estimated that by 2050 we will have more plastic in oceans than fish. Livestock, fish, turtles, & seabirds, for example, are ingesting plastic with tragic results. We must also continue to address chemical pollution & e-waste. Most importantly we must all commit to circular economy practices. We must all act responsibly.”
