At the UN Ocean Conference, Mr Keriako Tobiko, Kenya’s Cabinet Secretary for the Environment and Forests, announced landmark legislation that will be submitted for discussion and approval by the Kenyan Parliament. It could "revolutionize environmental governance" and "contains critical principles, which include the recognition and protection of defenders of environmental rights, protection of forests and green spaces, recognition of the right to nature and, most importantly, creation of the crime of 'ecocide'". The proposal is part of Kenya’s revision of its Environment Management Coordination Act. CS Tobiko made the declaration alongside a commitment to a range of measures Kenya is taking with regard to marine pollution and ocean health regeneration, including multi-stakeholder approaches to a “blue economy” as well as specific actions such as an extension of an existing ban on the manufacture and use of polythene bags to curb plastic pollution. Great job, Kenya I hope it goes through Parliament! https://www.stopecocide.earth/new-breaking-news-summary/un-ocean-conference-co-host-kenya-announces-proposal-to-criminalise-ecocide
