b) Increased mandate for NEMA e.g. audit and determine the net worth or value of natural resources in Kenya (Section 9.2bb)
c) Formation of County Environment Committees (Section 29)
d) Abolition of National Environment Council, Standard Enforcement Review Committee and National Environment Action Plan Committee
