Ministry of Environment, Climate Change and Forestry


Abstract : The country has put in place a number of measures to address climate change; including the National Adaptation Plan (NAP 2017 - 2030) that addresses adaptation across all sectors of Kenya’s economy and the National Climate Change Action Plan (NCCAP 2018 – 2022) that charts a low carbon climate resilient development pathway. This pathway emphasizes sustainable development, while prioritizing adaptation, and recognizing the importance of enhancing the climate resilience of vulnerable groups, including children, women, youth, persons with disabilities, the elderly, and marginalized and minority communities.
