Kenya among countries to benefit from global fund that will enable farmers adapt to climate friendly farming

Kenya is among the top beneficiaries of $17 billion investment in projects to help farmers adapt to climate change. The Agriculture Innovation Mission for Climate (AIM for Climate), a global initiative spearheaded by the United Arab Emirates and the United States, is spending money on 78 projects globally, including those in Kenya. The fund is meant to advance climate-friendly farming around the world. The scaled-up investments were announced at the 28th United Nations Climate Change Conference (COP28) in Dubai on Friday. The project is financing $350.4 million (Sh54.2 billion) in projects in Kenya, which will include investment in feedstock for renewable diesel; enrolling four million acres of regenerative agriculture by 2025; investing broadly in fermentation technology that powers new plant-based products; and support for the Lifesaving Education and Assistance to Farmers (LEAF) Program in Kenya. AIM for Climate was launched as a $8 billion initiative by the President of the United States at the COP26 in the UK. The investment was doubled to $17 billion last week because of increased support from over 600 government and non-government partners. The increase was announced by AIM for Climate co-leads US Secretary of Agriculture Tom Vilsack and UAE Minister of Climate Change and Environment, Mariam bint Mohammed Almheiri at the UAE Pavilion, COP28.
