Kenya takes advantage of “neglected blue economy"

Kenya takes advantage of “neglected blue economy"


Kenya has “neglected” the “blue economy opportunities” presented by taking care of the ocean in the past, and must be a better steward in the future.

That’s according to Kenyan environment, water and natural resources minister, Judi Wakhungu, who led the east African nation’s delegation to the historic UN Ocean Conference.

She said Kenya had to increase the amount of coastline that was under protection, and help preserve livelihoods.

Ms Wakhungu spoke to Grece Kaneiya.
