REAL impacts

LEDS GP provided expert review of Kenya’s Climate Change Framework Policy. Experts from six different institutions and governments provided valuable suggestions to strengthen Kenya’s Framework for Climate Change Policy, including suggestions on strengthening monitoring and evaluation indicators and benefits of the policy, among others. Comments provided by the LEDS GP experts were incorporated into the revised version of the policy which was validated by the Cabinet and presented to the Parliament for approval. This policy will provide a framework for action that promotes low carbon development in Kenya and is an important milestone in the country’s path for developing its economy while reducing greenhouse gas emissions.
