A Toxics-Free Future


Kenya Global Day of Action Report

Global day of action on POPs in Kenya.

Solid waste management is a perennial problem plaguing major municipalities in Kenya like other developing countries. Management of medical waste as well as the burning at waste dumps produces dioxins and furans, which end up being taken up in the food chain. The above problems prompted Physicians for Social Responsibility (PSR-Kenya), African Center for Environmental Advocacy and Governance (CEAG Africa) and iLima-Kenya to collaborate and organize an awareness-raising campaign through the Global Day of Action. The campaign involved a series of educational activities for community-based organizations engaged in solid waste management in eight districts of Nairobi as part of the GDA in 2005.
