The Principality of Monaco has taken part in the 4th Session of the United Nations Environment Assembly (UNEA) held at the UN Environment headquarters in Nairobi, Kenya.
The decision-making body, the largest in the world on environmental issues, brings together ministers of the environment and senior representatives of the 193 UN member states to determine the main directions of global environmental policy.
This year, from 11th to 15th March, the theme at the heart of discussions was: ‘Innovative Solutions to Address Environmental Challenges and Ensure Sustainable Consumption and Production’. A ministerial declaration advocating concrete actions in this area was adopted at the end of the work.
The assembly also adopted numerous thematic resolutions, including one on the sustainable management of coral reefs proposed by Monaco in collaboration with Indonesia, as Co-Chairs of the International Coral Reef Initiative (ICRI).
Finally, the meeting was marked by the inauguration of the newly elected United Nations Executive Director, Inger Andersen (Denmark), recently elected Executive Director of the UN Environment.
Monaco has highlighted the importance of sport in tackling homelessness and building a sense of belonging at a recent United Nations meeting.
The Monaco Red Cross has responded to an international call for donations, contributing €70,000. But it is hoping to raise much more.
The Alpes-Maritimes has recorded it warmest winter season since 1958, according to the experts.
A delegation from Monaco has visited the African nation of Mali where health, education and civil protection topped the agenda.
The car was driven by Schumacher in 2001 at F1's most prestigious race, the Monaco Grand Prix. It was also in this car that he won his fourth Driver's Championship, winning the 2001 Hungarian Grand Prix. The iconic Ferrari is in racing condition and the manufacturer has agreed to help with the transport and storage of the car. Part of the record price will go to Schumacher's charity, Keep Fighting, which works for safer roads. Schumacher himself is currently still recovering from the traumatic head injuries he suffered in 2013 in a skiing accident.
