On Monday, Lord Tariq Ahmad of Wimbledon held what he described as a ‘productive discussion’ in Nairobi with Executive Director of UN-Habitat Maimunah Sharif.

The pair, both in Nairobi for the Blue Economy Conference, discussed the leadership of the UN agency, which advocates for better quality sustainable and inclusive urban development.

Lord Ahmad also welcomed Ms Sharid’s efforts to implement UN Secretary-General António Guterres’ reforms and subsequently secure her agency’s future.
