How entrepreneurs win climate cash for business expansion

We are getting to that time of the year when global climate change events will be held. What does it mean for the average man or woman in the streets and village paths of Kenya? Did you know there are opportunities for Kenyans to participate in competitions where winners get millions of shillings to help their communities adapt to climate change? As can be expected, such competitions attract lots of participants, and only the best ideas get rewarded. Ever quick to spot opportunities, Kenyans have not been left behind in their quest for the lucrative prizes. In November 2022, University of Nairobi student Victor Orindi won 15,000 Euros (Sh2.3 million) during the United Nations Climate Conference held in Egypt. Orindi was awarded for his work that supports communities in getting access to climate finance from various sources.
