The Pan African Climate Justice Alliance is today (Monday) holding a workshop on climate change mainstreaming at Ngong Hills Hotel in Nairobi.
The meeting brings together key stakeholders – government representatives, civil society, academia and members of the private sector - to interrogate the state of affairs of climate change mainstreaming processes.
The workshop will look deeply into Kenya’s implementation of the Nationally Determined Contributions and the efforts counties are making in the transition to low-carbon, climate-resilient green development.
This workshop is expected to facilitate relationships between the Civil Society Organisations and the new county governments in working towards Climate Change Governance at the county level.
The networks and recommendations developed will add to PACJA’s work of enhancing Climate Change Governance in Kenya.
The meeting has been convened under the project on Improving Civil Society Engagements in Mainstreaming Climate Change at National and county level sectorial policies and programmes that are currently being implemented by PACJA with funding support from Act Change Transform (ACT!).
Through this project, being implemented both at the national level and in two counties, Baringo and Turkana, PACJA is working in collaboration with relevant government ministries including the Ministry of Environment & Natural Resources, Ministry of Water, Ministry of Agriculture, Ministry of Energy, the Private sector, Academia and other civil society organisations from the national and county level.
Climate change mainstreaming is a process facilitated by institutions such as sectorial agencies, county/national governments and non-state actors.
