Nairobi - The United Nations Environment Assembly (UNEA) meeting has kicked off in Nairobi.

More than 1 300 high level participants, ministers, chief justices, economists and civil society leaders from around the world will converge in the capital city.

UNEA’s opening session will be an historic high-level event with the participation of numerous Ministers of Environment and Development.

Hundreds of high-level government representatives and leaders from business, industry and civil society are also expected to attend.

UNEA enjoys universal membership of all 193 UN member states as well as other stakeholder groups.

Major issues on its agenda include the illegal trade in wildlife; environmental rule of law; financing the Green Economy; and the Sustainable Development Goals and the Post-2015 Development Agenda, including sustainable consumption and production.

The first UNEA session is expected to deliver a series of outcomes that would spell out concrete actions to address the key environmental challenges discussed at UNEA.
