"Green Economy driven by resource efficiency is the basis for sustainable development and poverty eradication. A green economy revolution is already taking place in Kenya, where the harvesting of geothermal energy from the East African Rift is just one of the many renewable energy projects underway across the country. By learning to more accurately value our own natural resources, Kenya will be able to better harness these strategies as it moves towards a holistic, inclusive green economy in the future.” "
"Not all pollution can be cleaned up," says Pierre Sadik, a lawyer with Ecojustice Canada. "In many instances, remediation, which is a very broad term, simply means putting a fence around the site, or putting plastic liners around the site, and then a process of ongoing monitoring for decades and perhaps even centuries down the road."
"The work at ELA has been very important in driving policy, not only in Canada but around the world" said Mike Paterson with IISD
