Enhancing Direct Access to Adaptation Funding in Kenya

LTSA is providing technical support to the Government of Kenya (GoK) to develop an investment-grade adaptation pipeline, project concept notes and proposals for submission to the Green Climate Fund (GCF). Kenya submitted its Intended Nationally Determined Contribution (INDC) to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) in July 2015. Kenya's INDC places a significant priority on adapting to the effects of climate change. It presents 18 macro-level adaptation actions aligned with the country's Medium Term Plan (MTP) and also elaborated in the National Action Plan (NAP). The Green Climate Fund is intended to be the centrepiece of Long Term Financing under the UNFCCC. It has set a goal to raise $100 billion per year by 2020 which provides an opportunity for climate change stakeholders in Kenya to mobilise resources for the implementation of the country's INDC and NAP. LTSA recommends that the process of enhancing direct access to adaptation funding in Kenya be built on the INDC and NAP processes and that adaptation actions within these documents be prioritised for GCF funding. In line with this LTSA will support the GoK to develop an investment-grade adaptation pipeline, develop 2-3 project concept notes and 1-2 full proposals. We will build the capacities and enhance the skills of the relevant GoK officials to write funding proposals, monitor and evaluate GCF projects. LTSA will also develop an M&E framework and tools for monitoring, evaluating and reporting programme and project outcomes as well as support lesson learning and knowledge sharing related to climate finance.
