Purpose/Goal: Towards Enhancement of Climate Change Governance in Kenya
About the Project
Climate change mainstreaming is a process facilitated by institutions such as sectoral agencies, county/national governments, and non-state actors. Engaging these institutions in a bid to generate options and approaches to mainstreaming will be undertaken through discussions with relevant sectors targeting key institutions such County governments, Council of Governors, Ministry of Environment -Directorate of climate change, Ministry of Energy and Petroleum, Forestry sector, Energy sector, Agriculture sector, and Water sector.
These discussions are targeted to these key sectors and institutions to provide an opportunity for exploring mainstreaming options in their plans, policies, and programmes. Through CSO led engagements with both state and non-state actors, it is expected that this will culminate into a common position brief on climate change mainstreaming in Kenya.
The project also aims to develop of specific knowledge products in form of policy briefs on state of climate change mainstreaming at both county level and national level.
To achieve the above, PACJA will work closely with its CSO partners and networks as well as key sectoral and county level partners to ensure the success of the activities. Leveraging on the already existing relationships will be added advantage to the project.
- To enhance integration of climate change mainstreaming in key policies, plans, and programs at national and county level.
