Kenya advocates multilateral approach to contain climate challenges

Nairobi, Feb 26 (Prensa Latina) The main representatives of the United Nations agencies for the Environment advocated here today for the multilateral way to face the challenges of climate change, the loss of biodiversity and pollution.

At the opening of the 6th UN Environment Assembly (UNEA-6), its president, Leila Benali, said that “the world needs more environmental multilateralism in the face of wars or electoral processes that distract governments from devoting more resources to solving the ecological crises that threaten the planet”.

“The triple planetary crisis (climate change, loss of biodiversity and pollution) that have placed the Earth at a crossroads where several “tipping points” converge, will be the backbone of the meeting that begins this Monday and will run until next Friday, March 1, at the United Nations complex in the Kenyan capital.

Benali, who is also Morocco’s Minister of Energy Transition, noted that humanity is currently witnessing wars and conflicts, with major international implications, which distract governments and key stakeholders from devoting time and resources to the most pressing environmental issues.
