Implementing a Risk-based Approach Towards Environmental Management



The mandate of this initiative was twofold: to support the Kenyan National Environment Management Authority (NEMA) to develop a risk based environmental policy and regulatory framework for delivering the new Environment Management Coordination Act; and to engage partners in government, industry and civil society in delivering environmental improvements. LTS conducted an independent review of the programme to evaluate its impacts and sustainability. Our staff carried out a stakeholder analysis based on detailed personal testimonies of programme and NEMA staff, participant observation, field visits and questionnaire surveys. The actions we recommended included: the development of environmental planning and influencing tools, enhanced regulatory capacity through the adoption of a risk based approach and a business planning model for national incident management.
