The Centre for Environmental Justice and Development, (CEJAD), was founded in 2012 in Kenya, with a mission to promote a toxic free environment. CEJAD works with communities affected by toxic pollution to limit exposures and advocate for policy change. The organisation works across plastic and toxic waste management, mercury elimination and the strategic management of chemicals and Highly Hazardous Pesticides (HHPs). Its approaches include research and data gathering, policy advocacy as well as public education and support to grassroots organisations. CEJAD is an active participant in a number of international policy forums, working groups and movements including the International Pollutants Elimination Network (IPEN).
