The German Embassy Green Economy Cycle (GEGEC), an initiative by the German Embassy of the Federal Republic of Germany in Kenya, implemented by the Delegation of German Industry and Commerce in Kenya (AHK), has launched the “Guide to Green Economy – Kenya”.
The guide was officially launched by Michael Derus, Deputy Ambassador of Germany to Kenya and Head of Economic Affairs, Embassy of the Federal Republic of Germany, Nairobi on the 22nd of February 2019. Mr. Derus was joined on stage by Victor Kisob, United Nations Assistant Secretary-General and Deputy Executive Director of UN-Habitat, who urged the importance of such innovative projects featured in the guide due to the rising urban population and subsequently need for clean water and renewable energy. Two of the best practice examples featured in the guide were also presented to the over 100 attendants to the launch event, Ecocycle`s Klaermax water treatment solution and the Flip Flopi plastic recycling project.
