Kenya’s fight on the effects of Climate Change went a notch high with the launch of the Kenya Adaptation to Climate Change in the arid and semi-arid (KACCAL) Project on September 9th 2014 at Kenya Agricultural and Livestock Research Organisation (KALRO) in Loresho.
The project which is supported by the Kenyan government and the World Bank is a great stride towards enhancing the resilience of communities susceptible to climate change particularly those in arid and semi-arid areas in particular Taita Taveta, West Pokot, Garissa and Kilifi.
The Ministry of Agriculture, Livestock and Fisheries under the existing structures of the Kenya Agricultural Productivity and Agribusiness Project (KAPAP) is implementing the project which is divided into three major components, that is, Climate information product, policy and advocacy, Community driven initiatives for climate resilience and lastly Climate risk at the county level.
Principal Secretary Ministry of Agriculture, Livestock and Fisheries Sicily Kariuki called on the Authority to accelerate the approval process of agriculture projects in particular the Galana project.
The National Environment Management Authority was among the exhibitors showcasing enlightening information on climate change mitigations as well as remarkable and tangible efforts being undertaken in respect to climate change adaptation.
From the word go it was clear that the Authority was at the forefront to ensure that all matters pertaining to the environment are being well managed and at a sustainable manner.
Furthermore, under its recent role as the National Implementing Entity accredited by the Adaptation Fund, it is working to place the country in a better position into climate finance world for enhanced climate change adaptation and mitigation on the adverse impacts associated with it.
