Delegates at the Launching Conference of EANECE, Kenya, May 2010

A U.S. EPA press briefing announces Administrator Lisa Jackson’s agenda for travel to Kenya and Ethiopia on Friday, 18 February 2011 to engage in bilateral and multilateral meetings aimed at building relationships with key African counterparts and other environmental leaders.

Part of Administrator Jackson’s meetings will include joining the director general of Kenya’s National Environmental Management Authority to speak on environmental initiatives and to participate in a roundtable with the East Africa Enforcement Network.

The East African Environmental Compliance and Enforcement Network (EANECE) was established in 2010 by the governments of five East African countries — Kenya, Tanzania, Uganda, Rwanda, and Burundi, in partnership with INECE — to promote the rule of law, good governance, and sustainable development through efficient and effective implementation and enforcement of environmental legislation and policies.
