UN and Kenya ink deal over environmentally sustainable tourism

The UN housing agency and Kenya have signed a deal to promote environmentally sustainable tourism in the east African country.

UN Human Settlement Program (UN-Habitat) Chief of the Urban Energy Unit Dr Vincent Kitio told a media briefing in Nairobi that under the agreement, the UN body will offer technical advice to the Tourism Finance Corporation (TFC) on the designs for new hotels as well as on ways of retrofitting existing hotels in Kenya.

“The aim is to promote energy efficiency in hotel design so as to ensure the hospitality sector is environmentally sustainable,” Kitio said.
