Iran Attended UN Environment Assembly

An Iranian delegation headed by the deputy head of Iran’s Department of Environment, Kaveh Madani, attended the third UN Environment Assembly in Nairobi, Kenya, on Dec. 4-6. The assembly represented the world’s highest-level decision-making body on the environment, Mehr News Agency reported.  Over 4,000 heads of state, ministers, business leaders, UN officials and civil society representatives gathered at the assembly to tackle the global menace of pollution. This year’s assembly is climate-neutral and features side events that address pollution in its various forms. It aims to deliver a number of tangible commitments to end the pollution of air, land, waterways and oceans, and to safely manage chemicals and waste. Over a dozen resolutions are on the table at the assembly, including new approaches to tackle air pollution, which is the single biggest environmental killer, claiming 6.5 million lives each year.  Exposure to lead in paint, which causes brain damage to 600,000 children annually, and water and soil pollution are also key focus areas.
