Building Climate Resilience in Kenya

Climate change is threatening to reverse Kenya’s progress on poverty reduction and exacerbate economic and social inequality. In order to build resilience and outline a low-carbon approach to development, IDLO has assisted the Kenyan Government in drafting a comprehensive National Climate Change Action Plan 2013-2017. This technical assistance included compiling a Legal Preparedness Assessment Report and establishing a Climate Law Working Group, made up of law students from Kenya’s leading universities.

More broadly, as part of creating an overall enabling framework for sustainable development in Kenya, we have facilitated dialogue with stakeholders and built the capacity of policy makers through workshops, technical assistance and toolkits.
