BRS Secretariat participates at the third U.N. Environment Assembly as observer

The third session of the Environment Assembly (UNEA-3) will be an important event for the global community to declare strengthened political commitment for beating pollution and to provide directions and innovative solutions to achieve a pollution-free planet.
