GC Today - 21 February 2013


The First Universal Session of the Governing Council/Global Ministerial Environment Forum of the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) entered its fourth day at the United Nations Office in Nairobi, Kenya.

The Committee of the Whole (COW) convened to report back on working groups, approve draft decisions and adopt the report and conclusion of the work of the committee.

Other events included the launch of the Africa Environment Outlook, a UNEP publication addressing key environmental risks for human health, and a press conference appointing singing sensations Eric Wainaina and Suzanna Owiyo as Kenyan Goodwill Ambassadors.

Two side events were held on the topics of "Strengthening the human rights and environment nexus for sustainable development" and the "Presentation of a road map on the process of the establishment of an instrument on the application of principle 10 in Latin America and the Caribbean". The first side event was aimed at sensitizing the audience on the importance and practical significance of the linkages between human rights and the environment, and its mainstreaming in to environmental policy making. The second side event informed Governments and Major Groups and Stakeholders about the Latin America and the Caribbean Process and a regional instrument on Principle 10 of the Rio Declaration from 1992, with a view to encouraging relevant governments to sign the Declaration and participate in the process.
