National Environment Management Authority (NEMA)

The Environmental Management and Coordination Act No. 8 of 1999 (EMCA) established the National Environment Management Authority (NEMA), which serves as the main government tool for putting environmental policies into action. The environment in Kenya was degrading, there were growing social and economic disparities, and there were 78 sectoral laws addressing different aspects of the environment when the EMCA 1999 was passed. All of these factors had an adverse influence on the environment. Harmony in the nation’s environmental management was the primary goal of the EMCA 1999’s enactment.

The UNEP, UNDP, and DANIDA are just a few of the development partners with which the Authority collaborates closely. NEMA was established in 2004 and has followed the State Corporation (performance contracting) Regulations, 2004 legal notice No. 93, by implementing three strategic plans and engaging in performance contracting. These regulations compel, among other things, the Boards of Directors of state corporations to enter into performance contracts with the government, which serve as a benchmark for their regular evaluations.
