The Natural Resources Management Programme (NRMP) is a 4-year programme that will contribute to the implementation of the Vision 2030 long-term development strategy for Kenya, and specifically implementation of the first Medium-Term Plan through related sector strategies and sector development plans.
The main focus of the NRMP was reduction of poverty through sustainable management of the environment and natural resources. The GoK aimed to tackle food security and decrease livelihood vulnerability in drought-prone districts.
The LTS consortium sort to build capacity in short term Strategic Environmental Assessments (SEAs) and dissemination of SEA guidelines to parliamentarians, lead agencies, provincial environmental committees, and district environmental committees, among others.
Value and benefits
The development of SEAs and subsequent dissemination of guidelines was extremely useful in providing the National Environmental Management Authority (NEMA) with a process that is able to deal with evaluating cumulative, synergistic, secondary and long-term impacts.
