Ban Ki-moon revealed in Nairobi that governments will be expected to append their signatures to the new mandate that will help solve problems that bedevil communities globally. “Air, water and soil are under pressure of human activities and this is to be the main mandate of the newly formed UN Environmental Assembly (UNEA),” Ban said while closing the week- long assembly on Friday in Nairobi

He observed that the post-2015 development agenda will build on the progress achieved through the MDGs eight goals that were established in 2000. “The post-2015 agenda will need a new innovative and transformative means of implementation, including new partnerships that can work in an integrated manner, technology transfer, capacity building, information access, and monitoring and reporting for accountability,” he added
