President Uhuru Kenyatta arrived in Stockholm, Sweden on Thursday to co-chair the two-day “Stockholm+50” meeting which commemorates the 50th anniversary of the United Nations Conference on the Human Environment.
At the meeting, the leaders in attendance called for a greater global action to solve the triple planetary crisis.
In her speech, Swedish Prime Minister Andersson who is also chairing the meeting, noted that developing countries are the most hit by climatic change crises and should commit to the green transition.

On the other hand, President Kenyatta reiterated PM Andersson’s sentiments saying, there is a need for developing countries to accelerate their efforts before the situation worsens.
The President further called upon the developing countries to ensure that during United Nations Climate Change Conference to be held in Egypt later this year they should have developed a comprehensive, holistic, and transformative package of environmental actions.
