The French Head of State will be in the country to attend the fourth session of the UN Environment Assembly tagged UNEA-4 scheduled to take place from 11 – 15 March, 2019.

"We expect that he (Marcon) and President Kenyatta will co-host the summit on One Planet with the primary outcome of Kenya driving the global environmental agenda.

"We’ve begun to frame Nairobi as the world global environmental capital because we host United Nations Environmental Programme (UNEP). It has become as assembly of all UN member States and there are a lot of discussions going on around environmental management in Nairobi," she stated.

President Kenyatta last met with President Macron at the G7 summit in May 2017 where the G7 nations had talks with African Heads of State and Government.

CS Juma explained that the new collaboration with France was a step toward Agenda 2030, much like the partnership with Canada during the recently held Blue Economy Conference.

The UNEA4 conference will carry the theme of “Innovative solutions for environmental challenges and sustainable consumption and production.”
