EU-KENYA Green Diplomacy Conference

On the 11th and 12th of May 2021, the European Union and Kenya held a Virtual EU-Kenya Green Diplomacy Conference, an event organized as part of the EU’s diplomatic efforts to promote a transition to a climate-neutral, nature-positive, resource-efficient, and more circular global economy in line with the ambition of the external dimension of the European Green Deal. It specifically supported the need to define long-term pathways toward a green transition and consistent short-term milestones. It further helped build upon the EU support for multilateral action and, in particular, the EU’s objectives for the international negotiations taking place in the critical period of the following 12 months, which included, amongst others, the 26th Conference of Parties of the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change in Glasgow in November 2021 (Climate COP-26), the 15th Conference of Parties of the Convention on Biological Diversity in Kunming in October 2021 (Biodiversity COP-15) and the resumed 5th session of the UN Environment Assembly in Nairobi in February-March 2022 (UNEA-5). The project required Sustainable Inclusive Business to facilitate the organization of the virtual international conference in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic to guarantee sustainability while still delivering high-quality engagements.
