Action Plan for National Climate Change Response Strategy in Kenya


Several organisations are helping the Government of Kenya develop an action plan for the implementation of its National Climate Change Response Strategy.

Overview

In April 2010 the Government of Kenya published the National Climate Change Response Strategy (NCCRS). This was a thorough and comprehensive assessment of the issues that climate change raises in the country, and presented a detailed implementation and resource mobilization plan. This included the identification of adaptation and mitigation measures at an annual average cost of some US$ 3bn over the next 20 years.

Further reflection on the NCCRS has led the Government of Kenya to identify the intermediate actions that are needed in order to make coordinated and practical progress.

The Climate and Development Knowledge Network (CDKN), together with the UK Department for International Development (DFID), Agence Française de Développement (AFD) and other potential donor programs, has been approached to support and co-fund the development of this action plan. The Common Market for Eastern and Southern Africa (COMESA) is also supporting Kenya in this process, as a leading practice example that can be shared and replicated more widely across Africa.
