H.E. Remi Marechaux, the French ambassador to Kenya, led the French delegation at the first United Nations Environment Assembly (UNEA) of the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) that was convened in Nairobi from 23 to 27 June 2014.
This event was a historic milestone in UNEP’s 43 years history: it was attended by high-level delegations from over 160 UN Member and Observer States.
UN Secretary-General Mr. Ban Ki-moon, the President of the UN General Assembly, Ministers of the Environment and Foreign Affairs and Chief Executives of many international organisations attended the newly-established UNEA that brought together over 1200 high-level participants from governments, business and civil society.
