Kenya submitted its Nationally Determined Contributions (NDC) under the Paris Agreement which includes mitigation and adaptation contributions. In order to further elaborate Kenya’s climate actions, the Ministry of Environment and Forestry is finalizing the development of the 2nd National Climate Change Action Plan (NCCAP) for the period 2018-2022. The NCCAP is the framework for implementing Kenya’s Nationally Determined Contribution (NDC) under the Paris Agreement.
Private sector finance and investments will be needed to achieve Kenya’s NDC goals. The country’s private sector is already contributing to climate change mitigation and adaptation efforts, however, there is need for enhanced action and coordination to fully realize the potential of the sector in climate change response.
In this regard, the Ministry of Environment and Forestry with support from the Nationally Determined Contribution (NDC) support programme of the Low Emission and Climate Resilient Development (LECRD) Project, organized a three days’ workshop for the key private sector players and the Climate Change Directorate from 4th – 7th September 2018 in Nakuru.
The objective of the workshop was to develop a private sector engagement framework in the context of NDC and NCCAP implementation.
