National Adaptation Plan for Kenya

Climate change impacts threaten to affect adversely economic growth in Kenya, and endanger Kenya becoming a prosperous country with a high quality of life for all its citizens. The cumulative impacts of climate change over the next two or three decades have the potential to reverse much of the progress made towards the attainment of the Millennium Development Goals and Vision 2030. The Government of Kenya with support from the Common Market for Eastern and Southern Africa, Climate and Development Knowledge Network (CDKN), the UK Department for International Development and other development partners is helping put in place mechanisms to enhance the implementation of the National Climate Change Response Strategy. LTS, in collaboration with Acclimatise, is leading on the development of a National Adaptation Plan which forms a critical part of this comprehensive strategy. The multidisciplinary team will approach this complex assignment using best practice risk-based approaches to adaptation decision-making as per the UK Climate Impacts Programme. For more information, please see the project page here and the Government of Kenya’s Climate Change Action Plan website here.
