Contract Award: StARK+

LTSA is providing technical support to the Strengthening Adaptation and Resilience to Climate Change Plus (StARK+) programme funded by DFID to finalize Kenya’s National Adaptation Plan (NAP) which highlights Kenya’s adaptation priorities in a format that is easily accessible for reference by county governments, sectoral ministries, private sector and civil society actors and development partners.

Kenya’s NAP is based on Kenya’s National Climate Change Action Plan (NCCAP) that was validated in 2012 and launched in 2013. NCCAP adaptation works were consolidated into an Adaptation Technical Analysis Report (ATAR), as the final output under the relevant component of the NCCAP to generate political buy-in. The ATAR was used to develop a draft NAP in early 2013 which was inadequate and needed further refining.

LTSA will review and edit the current draft NAP, and generate metrics of priority actions, their costs and provide some indicative milestones. LTSA will ensure that the NAP is workable, actionable and contributes to adaptation understanding and action at the county and national levels. We will do this by aligning the NAP with the draft National Climate Change Framework Policy, Climate Change Bill 2014, Ending Drought Emergencies Strategy (EDE) and other disaster risk reduction initiatives at the national level as well as linking it with respective County Integrated Development Plans (CIDPs) at the county levels.
