17 October 2013, 19:21 Kelvin Wanjohi

Nairobi - The Cabinet Secretary Ministry of Environment, Water and Natural Resources, Professor Judi Wakhungu, has been appointed as a member of the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) Scientific Advisory Board by the Secretary General of the United Nations, Ban Ki-moon.

While accepting the appointment, Prof. Wakhungu promised to perform her duties at the Board with full commitment and dedication.

“This is indeed a great honour bestowed upon me, my Ministry and the government of Kenya and I will work in accordance with the UN code of conduct,” said Wakhungu.

Some of her key duties will be to strengthen the linkage between science and policy, and to ensure that the latest scientific findings are reflected in high-level policy discussions within the United Nations system.

The Board is comprised of internationally renowned scientists representing various fields of natural, social and human sciences. The secretariat of the Board rests with the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO).

The central function of the Board is to provide advice on science, technology and innovation for sustainable development to the UN Secretary-General and to the executive heads of relevant United Nations organizations.
