Nairobi, Kenya

The government has formed a committee to tackle toxic and hazardous chemicals posing risk to Kenyans.

Globally, nations have put in place measures to manage chemicals through voluntary or legally binding instruments.

Toxic and hazardous chemicals are regulated under Montreal, Rotterdam, Minamata, and Stockholm Conventions.

Though not produced in Kenya, importation of chemicals, export and use is not specifically tracked.
