Kenyan Government set to release over Kes 7B to counties for climate change mitigation

The national treasury is now set to release a total of Sh7.4 billion to counties as part of the grants towards climate change mitigation program under the Financing Locally-Led Climate Action (FLLoCA) program in the current 23/24 financial year. The program that is funded by the national and county governments as well as the World Bank and the Governments of Denmark, Germany, Netherlands, and Sweden will help reverse negative effects of climate change. National Treasury and Economic Planning Cabinet Secretary Prof Njuguna Ndung’u says the government with support from partners is keen to ensure that climate finance reaches the most vulnerable communities, where the devastating effects are already evident. Njuguna says the funds will be used to assist counties in developing and implementing tailored climate resilience strategies in response to risks identified by communities in sectors such as agriculture, water, and natural resource management. “I have seen the program, resources will be provided but remember it is a program for performance, we want results,” he said. Environment Cabinet Secretary Soipan Tuya who spoke during the event in Kisumu attended by participating counties from the Lake Region Economic Bloc (LREB) says counties must be able to show tangible results so as to demonstrate the contribution to bettering the country’s ecosystem. Tuya says the program is unique since it will encompass every Kenyan to participate in combating effects of climate change since it has no boundary. “We have agreed that we are going to work closely with the 47 counties to scale up the program,” she said.  The Ministry has put in place the requisite policies, strategies and plans to rally all efforts in the country towards the common goal of achieving a low carbon climate resilient development pathway. https://www.capitalfm.co.ke/news/2024/03/treasury-to-release-sh7-4bn-to-counties-in-climate-change-mitigation/?utm_source=dlvr.it&utm_medium=twitter&utm_campaign=treasury-to-release-sh7-4bn-to-counties-in-climate-change-mitigation

              this is commendable... but on the same note, the government of Kenya should change its strategies for dealing with climate change... it should be more proactive rather than reactive

                The Treasury's decision to allocate funds for climate change mitigation in counties is commendable. This financial backing has the potential to strengthen initiatives aimed at addressing local climate challenges, enhancing resilience, and fostering sustainable development. It is time we see the treasury work for the Kenyan people

                    @patrick_kiash Allocating funds to mitigate climate change impacts at the grassroots level is crucial, as highlighted by the Treasury's initiative. This program holds promise in reversing the harsh effects of climate change, particularly in counties by investing in local-level solutions. We hope for it to eventually benefit the local communities

                      Initiative to release funds to counties for climate change mitigation demonstrates a proactive approach towards addressing environmental challenges. This significant investment will support local efforts to combat climate change and promote sustainable development across the country. I hope there will be accountability and transparency in the use of the funds.

                        @walter_lungayi The initiative to allocate funds to counties for climate change mitigation shows a proactive stance in tackling environmental challenges which has been lacking from the executive arm of government. This substantial investment will bolster local endeavors to confront climate change and advance sustainable development nationwide. But we really have to ensure the funds are well used to the last coin

                            @jane_wangui While acknowledging Kenya's efforts in environmental conservation is important, there's still much more to be done. Yes, recognition is warranted but the focus should be on tangible results and continued progress. By remaining results-oriented, we can ensure that efforts to safeguard the environment are effective and sustainable, ultimately leading to meaningful impact and lasting change in the country's environment and green initiatives
