Government intervenes to address Nairobi's most crucial climate concerns

In a statement on Thursday, the authority revealed that it entered into a deal with the Water Resources Authority (WRA) to enhance water security in the Upper Athi River Catchment Area. The project, valued at Ksh1.5 billion (USD10 million), will be financed by the Green Climate Fund (GCF), which fashions itself as the world's largest climate fund dedicated to helping developing countries take climate action.The project will be implemented in Nyandarua, Kiambu, Nairobi and Machakos Counties for a period of four (4) years. It is expected to benefit 4.9 million households, a majority of whom are in the Nairobi metropolis area. "The agreement was signed by NEMA DG Mr. Mamo B. Mamo and WRA CEO Mr. Mohamed Shurie on behalf of their institutions," read the statement in part. "The GCF financed project is a climate change adaptation intervention that seeks to enhance water supply in the four counties within the Athi River catchment by investing in distribution infrastructure and strengthening hydrological and meteorological information management, among other services." https://www.kenyans.co.ke/news/96320-govt-addresses-nairobi-concerns-funding-worlds-largest-climate-fund?utm_source=Twitter&utm_medium=DK&utm_campaign=Promotion
