Nairobi: Morocco Participates in 3rd UN Environment Assembly
Nairobi – Morocco is taking part in the 3rd UN Environment Assembly, which kicked off Monday at the United Nation headquarters in Nairobi, Kenya.
The Moroccan delegation to this meeting, to run until December 6, is led by secretary of state for Sustainable Development, Nezha El Ouafi.
The United Nations Environment Assembly is the world’s highest-level decision-making body on the environment.
It is also an ideal platform for bringing together different stakeholders: governments, civil society/major groups, science and the private sector to enable them to work together to tackle the shared and unprecedented challenges the world is facing.
Ministers of Environment of all countries around the world will gather to discuss the status, trends and actions needed to be taken to address pollution in all its forms: air, marine, freshwater, soil and land, including chemicals and waste.
They will be joined by private sector representatives, civil society organizations and other stakeholders. Civil Society, represented by Major Groups and Stakeholders (MGS) have a critical role in supporting the decision making process at the 2017 Environment Assembly, by engaging with governments, sharing their expert knowledge and by ensuring that the voice of those who might be effected by decisions taken, is heard.
This year’s Assembly will launch the interactive Leadership Dialogues, which will provide participants with an opportunity for high-level engagement and discussion on how to achieve a pollution-free planet.
