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).
