Secures 39.3 Billion for the Implementation of Community-Driven Climate Financing

In a groundbreaking move, the government, alongside development partners, has secured a substantial sum of 39.3 billion shillings to kickstart a locally-driven climate action financing program. This ambitious initiative, known as the Financing Locally Led Climate Action (FLLoCA), aims to directly assist the most vulnerable communities grappling with the harsh realities of climate change. This program's rollout across 45 rural counties follows a successful trial phase of county-level climate change funds. The results were promising, fostering a deeper understanding of climate change and tailoring solutions to mitigate its impacts.
Supported by esteemed partners like the World Bank, Germany (KfW), Sweden, Denmark, and the Netherlands, the government is already setting the wheels in motion to disburse funds to counties for program implementation. The FLLoCA initiative stands as a beacon of cross-agency collaboration, spanning from grassroots communities to international development agencies, in confronting the challenges of climate change head-on.

During the unveiling ceremony in Kisumu for the 16 Lake Region Economic Bloc (LREB) counties, CS Ndung’u lamented the debilitating effects of insufficient funds, which hinder inclusive community development and exacerbate poverty among millions at the grassroots. Particularly noteworthy is the segment of the FLLoCA program dedicated to the LREB, funded by the KfW Development Bank (Germany). This segment aims to empower 16 agro-ecological counties to decentralize climate finance, bolster local resilience, and adapt effectively to climate change impacts at the ward level.

                  What I would like to see when this climate financing is at work is one thing, the communities being directly involved on decision making processes and not bureaucrats sent by the ministries incharge as they don not understand what these local communities want. Power has to be with the people

                            @jane_wangui It has to be expected now, with such funding, you have to expect people wil leant to invest in what the government trusts in which is renewable energy and green projects. The position of the current government greatly affects investment choices of the people both directly and indirectly

                              @jane_wangui Investing in green energy can highly help avoid greenhouse gas emissions and protect communities from dangerous effects of climate change

                              Capital must be drawn into these types of projects that prioritize co-benefits to reduce carbon emissions at scale.
