Association Of Professional Societies In East Africa (apsea)


APSEA was established in 1961 as an umbrella body for all professional Associations in the then East Africa protectorate. The main aim was to maintain, advance and advocate for the highest professional standards and ethics in the public interest and to promote the interests of the members both regionally and internationally.

After the break-up of East African Community in 1977, APSEA remained largely a Kenyan institution. However, since 2002, the Council of APSEA has made substantial progress towards ramifying APSEA to a truly East African institution. APSEA has in the last five years organized and hosted four consultative regional workshops in a bid to promote integration of trade in services in the East Africa and revive the country offices. The workshops were geared towards creating awareness of the inherent potential of trade in professional and other services in the social and economic development of the region. APSEA has subsequently since 2007 participated in the negotiation process of the East Africa Common Market Protocol.

In the recent past, APSEA has developed strong partnerships with governmental and non governmental institutions that promote the cause of professionalism. APSEA continues to provide the much needed link between the government and professionals especially in cross cutting issues through the Public-Private Sector Partnership Programme.

Since its establishment in 1961 the current Chairman is the twenty third (23rd) in a line of individuals who have served the Association in this capacity on an honorary basis. These individuals include the current Attorney General of the Republic Kenya who was Chairman from 1984 to 1987.

Comprehensive Nuclear Test-ban Treaty Organization - Ctbto


The Comprehensive Nuclear-Test-Ban Treaty (CTBT) bans nuclear explosions by everyone, everywhere: on the Earth's surface, in the atmosphere, underwater and underground.

Why is the CTBT important?
It makes it very difficult for countries to develop nuclear bombs for the first time, or for countries that already have them, to make more powerful bombs. It also prevents the huge damage caused by radioactivity from nuclear explosions to humans, animals and plants
